With one early move slightly further out right than is perhaps allowed.. In my defence it was snowing really quite heavily at the time.

I confess, I did a bellyflop top-out on this route but the final moves are very scary when you're soloing and too short to reach the top from the ledge!

Real Slabby test piece - nerves of steel required in place of protection. Protection less than obvious (unless you have huge friends) - very slabby!
