Fell off at the end of the traverse when a cam I was trying to retrieve popped out and hit me in the head, was wearing a lid.

Great route. Fell on Crux (transition to corner). A real leap/barn door got me there but there must be a better way!

Good fun, with a very definite tricky move at the end of the traverse, perhaps 5c?? I kind of doubt it was the first ascent in 2009 for such an obvious traverse line in a well climbed quarry

FIRST ASCENT, spur of the moment thing. Bombproof gear all the way, one hard ish move at the end of the traverse, drop down kind of move.
