Really strong start up the initial crack but the top wasn't as bad as the guidebook made it sound

The start took a bit of work (definitely start up the left crack then move right) but was a lot of fun. From the ledge up it looks easy but topping out was quite scary!

Fell off on the start. Think there's (now) a loose small chock in the right crack. Sorry.

Took the left hand crack to start, feels like a bouldering problem. Topping out was a bit suspect until I found the magic hold!

Not terribly good. A very hard start, and easy middle, and an awkward but very short finish. More like HS 4c.
