Nice climbing. Sort of faffed about threatening to balls it all up a bit in the middle before rocking onto the break. Found it a bit nervy but essentially quite easy from there

Nice mantelshelf move, foot slipped but somehow stayed on. Top half felt pretty bold.

Belayed Rob before leading. Seemed like a mini-Telli.
Owen W-G - Lead β - 21/Oct/07 with Robin

This was a nice route. The crux was probably standing up in the break, then the top moves were pretty interesting but steady. Taller people who can reach the pocket will find this much less scary!
