Traversed along top over to Uranus and lowered off from that anchor. Had crag to ourselves so made the most of it. Climbing with bad foot.

Really enjoyed this traverse finished at the top of Luke Skywalker. Good juggy traverse with a lot of shoe friction, which is unusual for Horseshoe.

started unexpectedly on Dr Who (f6a+) - as previous climber bailed out - interesting route for a shortarse - gets easier the further left you traverse.
