Horrendous chimney/offwidth thrutching to start, then horrifyingly green/dirty. Other than that, a great route.

Did this to lean over and get the gear from Charlie's Crack, which seemed desperate (Marco fell off it three tiems and I couldnt see how to do it either without really hard finger jammign just where the gear was). Anyhowm, the start of this first two moves) also seemed a bit tough for HS 4b?
