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!

Excellent climb, mid section vertical with reasonable distance between bolts to the left of black flowstone patch. Finish on ledge at top with great views.

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.
