Spent a loooong time and got pumped before committing to the crux, which was ok in the end but I couldn't get great gear in so not very well protected. Topped out and had a chat with Don Saergent who'd taken photos of me on the route. shed_hed - Lead O/S - 05/May/13 with Dan Heath
With Darren. Not too bad but thought the undercut traverse was technical.

Second route in the Leap and last one of the day. The tide was just a few metres away from Phil by the time he started seconding. Really nice route, deserves three stars. More sustained than Shape Up but the couple of cruxy sections over bulges are both easier than the start of Shape Up, making for a more balanced route. E2 only because a bit bold on the cruxes.
