Exposed traverse on good-ish pockets, then step up to the breaks for the first real gear placement (by which time all the hard moves have been done). Nevertheless an enjoyable (if a little nervy) route.

Rubbish cams after half height and so cold couldn't feel fingers, generally scary
Owen W-G - Lead O/S - 27/Mar/10 with Gav

The bottom bit is hard, no way 5a, but at least its well protected. Thought the top half was really bold, just thin breaks! Sandbag at VS for sure!

Pete went first, then Marc, then me. The first time a little pinchy pebble came to my rescue.
