Soloed the short bottom section and then roped up below the climb proper. Had a bit of an epic time once i'd gone up past the ledge as I really didn't fancy any of the gear at the crux, had a bit of an epic plucking up the courage and putting in something resembling a decent nut (Adam later said they all looked bomber) then finally did the great crux moves and up onto easier and safer ground above. Great climb!
