Al kept a cool head on this one, pretty run out for the leader. Gorgeous pocketed rock and hideous topout.

Blew my onsight escaping left at the request of my scared belayer. Did it clean next time up (with a different belayer). Nicely intimdating run out.

Arrived first at the crag and this line was crying out to be climbed. Felt a bit bold solo-ing on my own at a remote crag with no one else about.

Extremely happy with this, I normally have huge head problems when running it out, and with this one, I could see it was going to involve the harder moves on runout ground but took it head on. And abolutely loved it! I will have to tackle more of these headgames I think! Lovely interesting rock with odd pockets all over the place. Some brilliant traversing moves from the left lead to a few quick steps up to the top. 4b is about right, not 4c, and the mantle out of the climb is the hardest move! Dirty heather finish! Very happy boy after a brilliant day!
