Led this pitch in glorious evening sunshine yesterday.

Arrived at the peg - clip, found a "reasonable" nut above - clip. Then spent a bundle of time up/down/up/down trying to work out how to continue up directly above peg.

Then shifted attentions to the left. Found a good almost double handed high crimp with a rock over for right foot. Bish. Bosh. Job done straight away. No more faff.

Wondering whether this is actually the "intended" move for the route?

In any case, this is clearly my favourite VS in Avon :-)

Pretty sure direct is the intended way, but left is common.

I ended up mantle-shelfing above the crack with the nut placement when I did it a few weeks ago. I enjoyed watching you figure it out....I wandered over and spoke to your mate to see how you were doing!
