|Was it you or Chris who nabbed the free FA, Bradley?|

|It was Chris and others should I believe, so what? First ascents are where it is most important. FFA after FA are like operating a machine already built by the FA anchors. Tom Bowker, Jay Golden and I did our best. In my perspective FFA top roped are common and less intense. It may have been top roped first and not done on sight.|

Climbed this thing today.
A fantastic adventure getting to the cliff from Crow's Nest/Jimmy Cliff. Tons of ledge scrambling and hanging out at the very nice clifftop.
Good climbing through the steep section, very well bolted and eases up significantly after that. I broke a handful of footholds and scraped a ton of lichen off of the climb. It would be a great climb if you are in the area and it was cleaned. Otherwise, not exactly worth the hike and potential injury from loose blocks in the gully.
