Always steered away from this one due to it's wandering nature, but with a selection of extended quickdraws it doesn't feel that bad at all.

Very wondering but quite good moves.

Pretty much onsight: had mega rope-drag at the top so grabbed the chain to clip. Did it totally cleanly after - having somebody remove the 2 rightmost qds helped a lot with the drag. Double ropes would be good as well!
GPN - Lead O/S - 11/Aug/15 with Gavin, Graham Hadaway

Managed to below the final line of bolts, but from thereon there was a lot of resting.
