Alan Bartlett, Karl Morelock (Karl with a K) and myself climbed this in 1993 believing it to be an FA but apparantly it had been climbed even earlier by Todd Swain who called it Lava Lamp.

I toproped the loose arete right of this and it was not that fun in 2007, easy 5.10. Best forgotten and not bolted.

I think this is a great climb for its grade.
