Looked easy from the ground. Wasn't. Didn't feel too happy with the gear below the crux and couldn't commit, hands going numb while I faffed around - had to downclimb to the ground and give myself a talking to.

This is a underestimated route - really good quality but nearly as hard as some E2s I have climbed

feilx - Lead O/S - 30/May/11 with Heather

Looked deceptively innocuous, but I bailed off the lead - very little gear on thin moves. Others passing by confirmed its sandbagginess. E1 I think.

Not great gear, moves quite hard to.

My first proper fall, gear popped, just stopped short of a bolder and a broken back!
