Got caught out on crux and took my first lead fall. Continued, finding the crucial handhold I had missed and did all the moves to finish. Also, it was all a bit sandy on the second half!

Good and well protected. Chunky, steady climbing. Not as sustained or as much jamming as description suggests. Would be 2* if it didnt get so close to the Diff in the corner near the top. Happy with this one - first orange spot route since accident.
