Last route after a long day of bouldering, trad then sport. There were a couple of tricky moves in the groove but I found the crux to be near the top on the *easier* upper wall. Climbed up and down a few times before doing it.
charley - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/12 with JackD

Took a big fall from the 3rd clip nearly hit the ledge after reading the route wrong, then got back on it and got stuck on the higher crux! Last route of a long day!

Grabbed a draw near the top. Head wasnt in it and I think I needed a rest day after 4 days climbign on the trot.
