Andrew Barker 19/Feb/08 Lead

Led ground-up having taken a massive lob from the very last move. Got pumped after spending too long faffing and placing lots of gear. Really good route, the crack is pumpy and the crux sloper moves feel insecure until the end.

Good one for a cold day. Top move is using 6a slopers, had a couple of rests before figuring out the sequence.
