3rd top 50 of the day, fun and easy. Challenged Greg to 2nd it one handed which made it a bit more interesting. At the belay point I couldnt actually work out the way to go as hadn't read the book and the route through the cave looked very tight. We both solo'd up through the tight cave to complete the climb and finish off the day.

Biggest fall I've ever had on the crag! And on the easiest grade. I was the last of 4 to go, by which time it was virtually pitch black. I must have been stood on something really green, cos my foot just slipped off, I swung to the right and clouted into the rock - ouch! started again and did it easily, but maybe a little more carefully.
