Didn't have any gear until after the difficulties. Deserves a little star :)

Climbed in approach shoes.
Andrew Sloan - 2nd rpt - 19/Oct/12 with Steve Grove

Short but awkward off-width. Good route, worth a star!
masa-alpin - Lead O/S - 07/Oct/12 with Tim S

Used a number 6 camelot to protect initial hard move. Would be very bold without it.

Mountain Llama - 2nd - 02/Oct/11 with Paul S

That move from the ledge into the crack ended up being much more positive once I got going. The only protection at that point required a cam bigger than my No4 Friend.
