Reachy. Joe sensibly took the right arete at the top, I went direct andslipped straight off the sloping mantle (very very green) then found a sort-of jam.

B-bop - 2nd O/S - 09/Apr/11 with T Max

Some interesting moves, almost fell off when making the move up to the flakes, found the top quite exciting as well as my safety seemed quite a long way down by the time I was topping out.
