Seemed a bit run out for a vdiff, and a bit tricky around the chockstone. Not sure if i stayed on route? ah well, a bit of brown in the pants never killed anyone.

had a bit of a mare on this. Must of tried it about 8 times. First time, somehow managed to go off route and ended up on the HVS next to it, then couldn't get over the chockstone. Couldn't even do the cheat and climb behind it. Swore a bit, left it for a while then came back later and managed to get over the chockstone no problem. Took a while, nearly got my arm stuck but loved it. Should have 2 stars....

Missed the "secret handhold" on the first try and backed off to the right (felt very uncomfortable climbing above a single very small not very secure nut in the break halfway up to the block). Ended up finishing up the large flake to the right of "Muscle Crack" Got beta from Clive G then led easily.
