Excellent crack, bit short, but tricky getting over the finish - went a bit too far right to make life easier.

Didn't do full traverse at the top as looked extremely green!

Easy. Walk past, "I'll just do this while we're here" Up, and belay set in 5 mins. Bosh. More mileage which is always nice. Reckon I can push on to HS next time out.
