Tricky pull over the top block, ended up going perhaps more left than is strictly proper.

Kerry and David both climbed it with some deviation to the left for the small overhang. Attacking the overhang direct seemed quite tricky for a 4a.

It's a very bold and technical move over the crux slab. I tended to the right to find some hand holds. The middle would have been very brave!
