THIN! Crimping the fossilised worm-poo, interesting. Got just over the lip on the flash but so crimpy, didnt have the beans, will come back for a redpoint when my skins recovered!

2nd go Soft for 7c+

Actually alright. A big ass move over overlap leads to crimps which are tricky to stand up on and gain the overlap. The top slab, surprisingly, has holds and is great.
