Had to rest on the last bolt although thought this was the best climb of the day - really enjoyed it. For some reason it took a while to spot the crucial hold to get over the overhang to the chains...

Climbed clean right to top bolt but had no umph left in fingers, arms or legs to make the move over the overhang so gave up and lowered off! Will lead it next time.
