rlellis1 - 2nd β - 17/Feb/13

Climbed with a headtorch. I think I may have used a bolt from the route to the left, but even with that it seemed very run-out to the lower off.

Enjoyed this. Also did most of Olive oil next to it but failed on the top move so have to resort to lowering off from top bolt of this climb.

Could be a wild lead for person who is leading at 4 or 5, run out at top. take some nuts or cams and it is well worth it.
