Lots of flaky lichen on the bottom section made finding holds difficult. Lack of gear placements until late on in the second section made me feel like this deserves an HVS for boldness.

Nice moves on the bottom half, sneaked off right at the top. Lichenous and slopey.

Covered in lichen yet it still appealed. Loved it although it felt rather bold stepping up onto the upper arete with rather dodgy gear.

Crazy lead by Charley, quite tricky if you're short. Kev 2nd, me and Steve TR
