Did the crux and got to the 3rd clip with ease but pinged off the next hold going to the flowstone edge just below the 4th bolt, gutted. Next time. Seems solid at the grade so far.
Ben Russell - Lead dog - 23/Apr/15

knee bar and heel hook helped. needed many attempts to get it clean. had to be very precised on each move.
