great climb nice feeling of exposure on the face, not many places to put protection so we were glad we top roped it, cheating I know!!

Didn't read description, didn't find flake on left, drizzle in the air and getting dark, bad knee and didn't have enough gear so felt more like E2/3 to me, not that I'm making excuses.
