small holds but enough of them. belaying awkward on steep slope - thanks for fixed rope there and bolt to sling into!

Dad led up and left quickdraws in. Loose rock, dehydration and lack of holds together with the length meant that I managed to lead most of the way but chickened out a few clips from the end - sudden long runout scared me. If it had been 15m I could have done it!
