Managed to free the crux on second, not sure if I could have done it on lead though. More excellent climbing all the way to the top with the 4c pitch having some great moves. The final route on a perfect trip to a long sought after destination.

Oli led the crux pitch, hard to second with a sack! Tricky route finding above but a great route.
odox - AltLd O/S - 30/Jul/11 with Oli Warlow

great climbing, a week of dry weather left the route mainly dry (a little seepage at the roof and slimy at the top).
