Messed up the top sequence so got tired and slumped onto a bomber hex, then just about got up at 2nd attempt. Grade correct if you do it right.

Climbing with a broken wrist was probably not the wisest plan!

Slightly exciting top out due to loose hold but nice jams and holds and not too high...

Absolutely butchered it so had to let Gav do it and then I seconded it (dogged). Had lots of trouble with the final move/jams. Not good!

Excellent. More of a boulder problem really. Short and therefore slightly harder.
