Slabby start then move left at crack. Less for the feet in the upper section but good side pulls. Sustained!

Took a very bad fall run out from the second bolt. Unexpectedly slipped with leg behind the rope. Flipped upside down and smacked head and knackered arm and hand. Dont remember much, think I blacked out for a moment. Thought the holiday was finished on the second day although lots of cold water and ibruprofen kept the swelling under control for the week. Learnt the hard way that my current grade isn't quite as high as I thought, should have expected as I've not climbed on limestone much. That said the climb looked really good so a shame I didn't do it!
