felt fine today as a warm up, found plenty of gear to protect the top section, and the stub of the upper peg

From the break direct up the face instead of via the grove to the left, although I couldn't resist a cheeky hand out left for one move. A good route despite the slightly escapable feel.

Description & pictured line didn't agree, not sure we had the correct line but certainly didn't feel like a 2* route.
