Didn't use the crack as I thought it was an eliminate route. Crimps. Ended up climbing high above first gear.

Had a bit of a moment on this. I read the route wrong and made it bit harder by going more to the left of the slab. Ange & Kev both did it the right way and shot up it without a problem.

May have gone slightly "off piste" as got quite close to the crack at one point. However we did the HVD next door next and didnt need to use the dubious hold, so maybe we were right, who knows!
