The Nine Edges

The second runner is a way up the route and so decking out from a fall is a possibility. The start is very polished too. The lowest graded route of the day, but the scariest. The last moves are ok as you finally get a jug!

Awkward moves to start, not great climbing. Protection seems like a waste of time, as all the hard moves have been surpassed. Awkward and slightly exposed for VD
