pussied out a bit as I was soloing and this was about my third rout on limestone. I wasn't completely trusting the rock yet as a result, especially where the holds polished. Definitely doable.

Fiddly and fingery. We all had a go and were all climbing above the gear at some point. Tough to hang onto while placing gear (when you're not very strong and like lots of gear anyway!). Jamie eventually finished it off, Steve seconding and me on the top rope.
SuperstarDJ - TR RP - 29/May/06 with Jamie Ireland

Cracking little route, took three of us quite a few attempts to crack it, but look of the draw allowed me to have a crack at the lead as I was least pumped at the time. David also TR
