Phil scrambled up P1 and I had P2, thought I was doing Ten Craters but as I went straight up from the flake then I probably did this? Good route but all the pitches on the top are a bit squeazed in.

First pitch quite fun - much better than it looks. 2nd pitch VERY reachy, but great holds.

With direct start past the ring peg, hard pull, and direct finish up Ten Craters. The best way up this bit of rock
