2nd go. More fun than it looks - funky, powerful moves to gain juggy flake.

All moves done and mostly linked up but just a little more fitness required.

Nice climbing. In between working The Bulge which was great fun but found distinctly lacking in fitness and elbows didn't like it much - probably one for next year then!

Nifty little route. Soft for the grade. Onsighted really well, read it from the ground almost perfect.

Worthwhile route that needs more traffic. Scary run out between 2nd and 3rd bolt.
