Bloody hell this was a bit of a technichal climb! Nice moves up the slab, and then a rather tricky traverse.

delicate balancy start, then fine, finish tricky
lithos - 2nd - 18/Apr/10 with Crofty

Steve went up first so I had an idea and he guided me through (literally) the crack / gap at the top with a wiggle to top out. Very satisfying climb, especially with (for me) an awkward top out.
