Watched Kc up to the thread and one more move up and right. But the fast aprochin pump stopped him committing. I then lead to his clip on the thread and back up nut in higher crack and lead on. Very nice. Can see why some struggle on this cause its overhanging a fair bit. Worth doing tho.

Thank god for that piece of tat. I didn't use it (I mean I didnt fall onto it) but clipping it meant I could concentrate on having a mild panic above and to the right of it. Getting to the tat is the easy bit .. surviving the pump on the next section is the crux.

Strenuous, and quite an undertaking for a VS 4b. An in-situ thread will just keep the route within this grade.

Enjoyed this, spent too long faffing around for gear, should have just climbed it moves were easy! Got caught out in a thunderstorm half way up! Was enertaining though!
