Ground up - had previously lead to 3rd bolt. Much easier going up and left rather than left and up! "Flashed-half direct" maybe?

Took two attempts to do the start. Then had a rest on the last bolt. Will try to lead next time.

Climbed clean on 2nd attempt after seeing Phil climb it. 1st attempt ended in getting my hands all wrong, not getting the 2nd clip so down climbed a little and took a nice long swing skidding across the grass!
