bunged in a load of cams in break on right wall then stepped down and attacked it direct after a a bit of feeling around and a rest found a good crimp under the nobbly bit. Got left foot up and i was at the top. Neither Ed or Graham could do it this way.Graham found hold out left below top.

Right hand finish. "cheating" in the new Rockfax, but just "easier" in the old BMC.
