Rested on gear at beginning section, took a bit of working out. Did it in the end. But did it a bit differently to how it looks like it should be done...missed out the jamming crack on the crux by bridging and using a small edge for left hand.
lizzie789 - Lead dog - 31/Mar/12

Very committing move into the layback, and hard work pulling on the jams. Though it was really hard.
