Nice line-bottom section felt easy- but with no pro- some small friends would help towards the top.Easy 4C but very bold.

Hidden - Lead rpt - 23/Aug/09

A bold and delicate climb with a couple of side runners low down to offer some (but not much) protection.

The problems lower down can be avoided but attacking the centre of the top bulge gives the best move of the route.
