...if you have thin hands! Nice one. How was the route-finding?

Agree about the hands, it was sort of off-fingers for me, but you have so much weight on your feet that I still didn't find it hard. I started wearing my crack gloves but found they were limiting getting decent jams rather than helping so through them down. How did you get down? My missus didn't want to second, so I abbed once to take the gear out, and then had to scramble up to release the rope (only had a single) then scramble down. Tried the left side to go up and the right side to go down. Both total 'mares!

I was seconded up by a hot blonde Swedish 19 year old girl (yup!) and just abbed down the normal way which is just off the top right of the photo. Did the route which crosses this one and is even better, too. I'm sure the abbing mare was worth it tho.
