After a bit of a nightmare on Hangman's Crack, I had another bit of a nightmare on this route. A few slips (although I "saved" them and didn't fall onto any gear or really loose my grip, a lot of encouragement from my seconder, and thirder (...and swearing), got me up the route in one piece. Too much panicking meant I didn't notice the "layback" style holds instantly. Made the route much more hard work than I should've. Placed 7pieces of gear (I'm a bit gear mad it seems) compared to the 2 used by one of the other guys who led the route). Easy set up round a boulder...with some climbing involved to get from the steps back into position-easier if not 5"2!!
