Basically a solo, think I had 2 cams in fairly low down somewhere that were pretty crap. The crux move doing the stretch across the pockety features high up is unnerving to say the least. What a great route!

Fucking hell. Wouldn't do that on lead! Crux was okay, but on end of hard sequence reaching for last mini-crimpy-ledge before top really struggled to reach, had to move back down and retry move.

Erm....no chance for me! J2V lead it and didn't enjoy the bold moves at the top. A horrible fall would have probably resulted in some teeth being left in the crag and put J2V off going for a move. Jen saved the day (for J2V) with an impromptu anchor and gear fed from the top.
