Fantastic route bold start fine though if u keep your head in gear!
Felix Ottey - Lead O/S - 06/Jul/13

Not so much dogged as cheated - I took a couple of rests by moving straight right onto the crack of Minute Waltz before returning straight left.

Low E2 or high E1 - can't decide.

Nice moves, perhaps a bit soft for E2?

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Oct/10

Fell off and scraped my way down slab luckily without injury. Got back on and sent it without problems.
Jon Didymus - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/10 with Rich

No gear for the first 6 metres. Tough moves to the first piece of gear. Reassuring holds and smears to finish perhaps worth two stars.
