No pads. Backed off and jumped three times before committing. The line in the Stanage guide moves onto the right face before the top but I stayed left and did the move to the hold you fall onto on Cleft Wing before moving right. Good scary fun.

Pretty good, should have done first go but felt scrittly and I got a bit worried about falling horizontally onto my back. 6B/+?

Terrible ascent. Dogged up it then led clean from the deck. Should have just bouldered it out as gear is less than inspiring and gets in the way.
