1. FFA means first free ascent
2.This was never an aid line
3.Even if it means first female ascent she is unfortunately on toprope

Props to Molly though this is a tough route!

1. Brett thanks for pointing this out, I have changed the language.
2. Where did you get your info that it says it was an aid climb?
2a. By no means does the description insinuate that it is an aid climb.
2b. It can be lead with traditional gear.
2c. This would be a scary lead because of the softness of the rock at the start.
3. Due to this, the top rope ascent is valid.
3a. Many of the FA's at Giant City have been on top rope, for example: Crackpot, My Feet Are Smiling, & Rappellers Demise.

Isn't that Poison Ivy? (Need to get back there soon)

I believe Jills was a right leaning/trending affair.

Crikey I'm get senile.

Won't matter if I can still send it I suppose...

Hey Joe,

I must confirm your senile-ness. It is indeed Jill's. I think its the angle the photo was taken from that makes it not look like jills.
