Soloed up to the arch, found the top rather slopey so finished with the aid of Andy's arm!

Struggled to get the start, fine once I found the right sequence. Also made a right mess of the top out but managed to squirm my way to glory.

Been on this a few times before but never figured out how to gain the shelf.
jkarran - Lead - 30/May/10 with Pete

Annoyed I slumped ont the gear first time but it was fine second go. One move wonder at the top and very safe route when you have a couple of pads to save the ankles. Bomber rock 5 under the roof.
