Sort of looks like a crux!!!

That's me! Brilliant route in fantastic condition. I'd love to get hold of a copy of the pic if you are feeling generous. I'll email you through Ukc.

I've got a few pics of you on that route as you move up from right to left. What's the hardest section and how did it feel - was the gear good? Will update the name of the climber....

Deciding to set off was a bit cruxy as the belay wasn't too sound! First piece of gear was on the slab just after the initial groove - a jammed friend or hex that was partially buried. Good nuts thereafter, just where needed, with a couple of "fixed" pieces. The route had seen a bit of traffic so not too choked up. All the roof sections were probably equally awkward and the traverse to the first belay is delicate but superbly airy. If you came off there you would take a swing into the corner, albeit onto an old peg!

wow, you could've been taking that from a helicopter for all I knew, incredible... even more so considering it involves 'climbing' on this nature photography site.
