No hands!! Had one slip on the move after the normal routes crux, a huge rock over, otherwise not too hard just timing and balance on reasonable holds.

Had just gone up it on 2nd. The crux is straightforward but what a difference a rope makes. Was there for a few minutes before committing.

Jackwd 20/May/12 Lead O/S

Tried this solo first but couldn't commit to the top move, on a rope I found it easy! How annoying!
