Been trying this on and off for way too long, so satisfying/surreal to finally get to the top

Felt straightforward today...unlike C3PO

Pleased to get this! Very thin. New boots helped on some tiny pebbles. Easier as it gets higher.

Woo Hoo was well chuffed with this one! I did it in that cold snap in march and the bog was frozen, ideal conditions!

Took a fair few goes to figure it out but once I got it sussed it wasn't too bad, though still felt pretty thin. Ended up doing it four times. Quality, wish I could onsight this sort of stuff on routes. This was one of the last problems we did on what ended up being a good day out with Ian W, Phil and Mike D despite an inauspicious, foggy start.
