Great little climb, pro where you need it, except for cheeky move half way up up, the crux is a fantastic move at the top and well protected, brilliant little 4b slab climb

annoying finish, it smashed my pinky. I wished i'd used the tree
shelagh23 - Lead O/S - 19/Apr/14

This time found the top-out much easier now the left handhold wasn't full of mud and soaking wet (although the whole climb is still very shy of gear)... I may not have religiously stuck to the far left of the slab, but I don't think it makes that much difference.

Slipped on the final bulge and ripped my dodgy offset, but since I then just landed on my feet on the ledge I would have still claimed the onsight had I made it over that damn bulge without manteling down on the tree. Even after getting my left foot up over the bulge, I couldn't quite get enough oomph to finish without pushing down on the tree branch. This may have something to do with the fact everything was damp and the two flaring cracks were full of mud? This gets VS 4b in the Dewerstone PDF guide and that move still felt much harder than anything on Leviathan for example. Will have to come back on a dry day and try again...
