Started up this overdressed. Placed first nut, stripped off! Then realised that my forearms were still sore from bouldering on Tuesday, so took my time. Made it eventually though.

Clean on sight, straight after Mike backed off the lead. Fun moves (easier for the tall) lead to a run out finish that is still hard enough to be a worry on the lead.
