Some loose bits nearly pulled a few down. Led in the rain with no problems until the lower off which has bad feet and the handhold was submerged in a puddle, fell then found a more secure puddle to put hand in second try

The lower-off is set back above the top of the wall, making it a scary mantel top-out. I backed off as I didn't fancy falling onto the big ledge below.
