Really nice. Full on commited to the crux only to discover I could no longer see my feet and was on the verge of taking quite a big lob onto some dodgy gear, ended up using my knee to push on to saftey. The VERY old bolt and higher peg should be removed, they add nothing to the quality of the protection and are not required (tho I did clip them!).

Took a awesome top rope fall from this. Ended the days climbing. A new project i think! Bottom is a really hard start for a short arse!
