Hidden - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/13

Uncertain re line of finish. Pumped-out trying. Got two moves higher 24 Sept on correct line (Rockfax is wrong, showing finish right of shield) but still couldn't figure last long link move to top-out flutings...

This is pretty go-ey. Really enjoyed the moves and despite being runout it never seemed too taxing mentally. Cool route!
