my favorite climb to date this !! this is exactly why i love cragging. we've looked at this before but my leader could swing into the groove, (not the song) not on this occasion! he made it in after a few attempts, then began to make some rather strange noises! ha ha. best 26m ive done, trouble is we needed more ! maybe grey slab??

And with Barra, slipped on first move only 3 inches from the ground, started again and completed cleanly in rock shoes. Barra completed cleanly in approach shoes, Chris couldnt make the move due to boots and height (not necessarily in that order) so instead of replacing boots for rock shoes, he replaced his boots for bare feet!! Stubborn or what! Last route of enchainment, before heavens openened and the rain came in! Wet walk back to the car... not barefoot I hasten to add.

Not nearly as desprate as the guide makes out, just a couple of technical layback moves off the obvious pockets on the left wal to start, nice above
