Steve set this up in the fading light just for me! I really enjoyed this one. It's a nice combination of little side pulls and using good weight and balance in the feet. Easy to move bodyweight around into the right position.

My best lead to date really chuffed to put it in the log book :-) I did top rope it a few years ago but didn't remember any specific moves. A great climb with a few tricky moves in the middle of the pitch - classic limestone climbing in a lovely spot.
