Finally did this after aborting a solo attempt many times. Felt hard. One runner placed from 'the jug' to prevent a ground fall. A mat would be better. Harder top out than some at Harborough. More sustained than 'The Blaster'.

Chickened out of the last move as I wasn't sure how good the hold was and I didn't fancy the fall (I've got enough injuries at the moment already). It's spurred me on to ordering a bouldering mat. I've tried this a couple of times before and was really pleased at how doable it felt.

top roaped fist, fell off alot, then desided I neaded to lead it (WHY!!!), Left the top rope on I case I got stuk without gear but told dan to ceap it dangourously loose, Then lead with a rest on gear. Had to lift of the jug 2ce to place gear, one for the nut and once for the quickdraw and rope. Then had to rest before finishing, Scary even with the potenial for rescue from top rope. Slippy!!!

Slightly overhanging lower wall. VERY VERY polished. Big jug is indeed a comfort. Quite strenuous as no real let up. Jug is great, but hard to let go of. Finger jam provides next move, or move right. Lead after many years of bouldering up to jug! Found extra hold just below jug - saved energy for top moves. Snow lying on top-out ledge with frozen fingers made finish exit interesting
