gcandlin - Lead O/S - 21/Feb/10 with Jo Marshall

Lead after a friend had already lead the route and so had some idea of where to place hands / feet plus tips from belayer during ascent. Tricky middle section (crux?) to get feet in a position to rely on them. Smears felt slippy on slanted left slab but pull and smear technique worked well. Pretty quick and smoothe climb from me.
