Amazing, the moves flow perfectly. Much better as a solo, and the rest of it after the hard bit is really easy, severe or similar. One of myfavourite experiences, at a deserted crookrise, in the autumn sun, wahoo!!

Well. I fell off the start a couple of times - really pleased with this straight forward after the beginning.
Mattyk - Lead RP - 21/Aug/11 with Jamie Moss

2nd attempt, ground up (with some handy beta from a friendly local climber). Nice moves, flows really well when you get the sequence.

Followed the description rather than the topo and probably traversed onto the face a bit high (off the very top of the flake). Felt fairly uninteresting except for the almost total lack of protection.
