wet but nice second pitch
JonmapDL - Lead - 22/Sep/12 with Tim, Bo

A great little route, climbed in two pitches - P1 to the ledges below the base of the crack proper, and then one long pitch (55m or so, past the tree ledge to the top of the crag). This meant we passed the crowds on the ledge and avoided the majority of the mess of ropework which was developing.

Tough crack and then scary finish to top pitch - way above gear and ankle break at least if fall taken. Felt like a stiff 5b move to get to tree.
