Finally, took a bit of effort. Got to the break 5-6 times previously but struggled with the top. Really fine problem

Worked out the way and got to the break a few times but couldn't do the top. Feels really hard to finish after doing the start. High quality.

First try today after failing near the top on Friday. Better conditions if a little windy!

7b/+. In a session. Puntered the top twice. Best problem in the valley? :O

1st go today - been waiting to tick this for ages having puntered the top a couple of times previously. Top's actually easy when the holds are clean and you bother to spot where they are from above!
