Before our first route of the day we free-soloed most of the route while having a look to see if we could get around the pedestal to access Avernus from the Freda ledge. Also downclimbed! Very polished and soapy start.

Very nice, easy climb. First part is really easy so just climbed straight through to the first big ledge. (We only had one set of nuts so wanted to save them and the start was easy). Had a plea from my belayer to put some gear in though, aww :)

Good climb - interesting traverse from the abseil down High Street...I wouldn't recomend it for beginners. Easy climb, a little polished on the start and therefore a little 'thrutchy' for an inexperienced second.
