Alex backed off from the moves through the flake so I had a bash, started drizzling a little bit. One slightly precarious move up to the flake, then a really powerful juggy section through past the next bolt. Some amazing holds on this rock, couldn't imagine any better. A tricky beached whale landing onto a shelf at the top!

Great sequence, fell off around the middle, bugger, but then did a nice sequence with flagging which felt good. Totally messed up the mantel at the top, fosbury flops will never catch on, again good one to repeat clean. Then it rained!

A bit pumpy but technically easy. Laybacking the big flake was fantastic. Apparently the finish is easier if you find the hidden jug.
