Retroflash. Couldn't remember where the crack on the top was so fell upwards onto the top - brilliant!

Did all the V0-V1s in Langdale guide and this was by far the hardest and most painful. Came back to it after deciding to warm up elsewhere. Sneaky time killer while Magda trekked up to Stickle Tarn.
