Jing belayed me from the top. Quite chuffed about this. 10years since I led it (& fell from the crux on first attempt). Got it cleanly this time on a top rope.

Didn't use the 5a hold out to the right as it felt like a cop-out, direct felt more like 5c - Many thanks to Steven Gregory for letting me jump on his rope!

Glad I did this clean after falling on first attempt, having been so over confident I didn't bother to place the high gear. Then found myself facing the wrong way. Hubris duly punished.

theres 2 ways to get over the crux. reach out to the left or go up the right and grab the good but devievingly small ledge. the second is probably easier but took us about 5 attempts to find it because we kept going the left route.
