Quite awkward at the bottom, not the best choice for the first route of the day. Difficult to avoid the neighbouring V.Diff at the top.
Rob Jarratt - Lead - 18/Apr/15 with Howard Jones

Struggled with my dodgy shoulder, stood in a sling to bypass that move, OK after that

Harder than it looks. Paul started and placed most of the gear but ran out of steam at the crux. I had a go and managed it ok.

More like HS - we did it by sticking just to the arete and face, without using the opposite wall or blocks in the chimney.

Tricky start and quite exposed slab finish.
