Chickened out of the lead - wish I had done it properly as on top rope the crux move was a lot easier than I feared and did not need to use the cam placement for my feet.

Decided to solo after the friends I was with lead it and found the gear a bit pointless! They said the moves were solid though and they were right. Never thought my first E1 would be a solo.

Led with small wire in the flake and cam in the pocket, good committing moves above gear and no problem with space in the cammed pocket. The man who was queueing for this route after me ended up in the air ambulance, see photo's. Kind of spoiled the day, that. Hope you're well now, mate!

Great route, very soft for the grade. I think the gear's not bad - may depend on the type of cam you use in the slot how much it gets in the way.
