Beware the obvious looking nut placement low down behind the shoebox sized block - block is a bit loose. Felt quite a bold start, but maybe I didn't look hard enough for gear!

Second clean on sight. Mike’s first lead on double ropes. An odd climb using side pulls behind the flakes and walking feet up the outside of them. Slightly dirty and loose in places. Not 2 stars.
