Felt harder than it should of been. Bit polished not very positive holds. Walked off after this( 70m left to a step down then abseil off into gully. Cheers for the abseil whoever you were.

Single pitch climb - harder than it looked for a Diff in one place. We maybe would have gone for a more difficult last pitch up the crag but hadn't got a guide book & didn't want to over extend ourselves.
