great little climb, i was not going to have a go at this climb because I thought it was a bit over my limit but a bit of guidance from my buddy Rob and I was on, and found that once you get to the crack it's all but over to soon.

A bit more sketchy than the other slab problem... but a good crack hold when you need it
