Too warm for pulling on the slopers to move onto the ledge from the right. Think this was how I did it last time - November conditions were better for this!

Tricky boulder problem start; very good. Went for the 5.9 finish but bailed back onto the regular finish, which is fairly straightforward but a little bit dirty. Rocking block is a little disconcerting too.

Took the correct line after the crux this time, was worth revisiting as has a few more good moves over the nose.
Graeme Hammond - Lead rpt - 23/Apr/13 with Richard Williams

not sure if i went up the correct way at the top, just went up the side wall, one to revisit maybe... crux done anyway

apparently I've done this before - had no memory of it though, felt pretty tricky! Next time I must man-up and do the 5.9 finish.
