sbattams - Lead - 13/Sep/14 with sarah davies

Misled by BMC guide stating 4+. It was too tough for a warm up. Should figure out how to do this route properly at some point as I don't think I did it the way it's intended.

jennifers87 - Lead O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Marissa Earnshaw

I like the length of this route, plus there's some nice moves. Rockfax doesn't state how far left of the bolts you're allowed to use. We decided as long as you're not bridging on to the next route this should be fine.
