Had to use a toe hook in the break to keep me on during the rock over mantle. Not an HS 4a as per the book !

Had to back of lead- found the thin cracks very awkward- but eventually did it. Latest Rockfax gives it HS 4a !! - thought it a hard 5a.

Rock Fairy - 2nd - 10/Jun/07 with david

nice little mini route....NEVER HVS though; solid 5a move but only 3 metres up and by as much bomb proof gear as you've bothered to take with you!!
Peakphil - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/07

if you use the right hand its a great hand jam! 'Requiem for tired fingers'next door is a great cunning boulder prob.
