Gear was pre-placed by Simon. I was expecting to second but he just chucked the ropes down and suggested I lead it.

Tried to go straight up the flake, got pumped and had no place to go/rest so downclimbed back to gear and lowered off. Spent the rest of the afternoon watching people step left from the flake so will try that next time.
