Some guy wanted his rope putting up to the lower-offs so his son could climb higher up. Didn't realise he didn'e have a harness and was body belaying for his son. Had to get guy to belay me up.

A slippery start to this 5 Bolt Route. Quite balancey between 2nd & 3rd bolts. Last move has to be taken in the right order (Left foot first). Had tried TR a number of times, but failed every time before 2B. Took big fall from 3B to 1m above deck. Finally led cleanly.
