wasnt a massive fan; felt thrutchy and a bit uncomfortable. not really used to climbing on this type of rock. But overall worth the stars
Gabe Oliver - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/13

Felt very traditional, wearing tweed would make it simpler. I got my body position confused at the top of the crack and took a small fall.

really enjoyed this. It looks so easy from the ground but I really struggled with it. I must have hung around 20 minutes before the final two moves before the huge pinchy jug which you don't see until you are level with it and was a complete god send.
