This is given HVS in Roaches guidebook though it was appropriate. First section was tricky trying to pull into the corner but after several attempts managed it and then really enjoy the exposed move around the nose and nice finish.
Chris Harding - Lead RP - 20/Jul/11 with Danny

Nice moves off the ground, but completely horrified by move off the block and the same move repelled 5 more of our party- all significantly better climbers than I!
