Didn't read description properly and ended up sketching my way up bits of Solid Geometry. That explains why I described it as 'the hardest f***ing V Diff I've ever done'... Lesson learnt.

Hard for VDiff
Ross.Cooper - Solo O/S - 26/Feb/12

Horrible climb; route-finding is difficult, the traverse round from the start to the flake is difficult to protect, there's not a great deal of gear, and it's not even that easy!
