Flowstone - It looks like there's about 100 holds to choose from but none of them seem good enough! Not much friction for feet. Got there in the end though.

Mmmm flowstone - my first experience of it, very interesting! Climbing above Alex's piss gave me the extra incentive not to come off! Quite polished unfortunately, feels waxy.
