Polished to a mirror sheen. Unnerved me on lead. Downclimbed from start of flake. Tim led, I followed and cleaned. Still didn't enjoy the slippery feet despite the positive flake handholds. Felt insecure at all times.

will led the first half then got pumped and lowered, I took over (having the unfair advantage of his preplaced gear - thanks will) - and finished off. nice route, awkward start but beautiful layoff once you reach it gets better the higher you go
pebbles - AltLd - 18/Jun/08 with will smith

Led as far as the flake crack, got pumped placing gear, wimped out and lowered off. On second (as usual) it turned out to be fine once I went for it. Had a bit of an epic getting gear out though so still got pretty pumped.
