Self belayed, did it after three goes. I'd tried it on a top rope early in the year, I'd only been climbing a couple of months and could barely get off the ground.

Looks easy from the bottom but just couldnt do it onisight. I think the algae preventing jamming and the greeness of the wall preventing smearing had something to do with it. We shall see in the summer.
