Just after the difficulties at the start were over, I came off together with a massive sidepull, hitting the ground on rope stretch. Got back on straight away. Good route.

Chuffed to bits with this climb. One rest overall with some quality belaying from Papabear.
Laura Parker - Lead dog - 28/May/12 with Alex Parker

Ever get that 'this looks easy' feeling at the bottom of a climb?.............It wasn't! Tricky start, easy mid section with a hard finish, which took a long time to figure out! A great climb though! Deserves the star, maybe one more.

This was a warm up, the rock was finger numbing and there were definite spits of rain. Being the last up and having to strip meant I couldn't wus out. Type 2 fun. Draws in place.

Relatively Straightforward until the top. Then an ambiguous crux, which when I abbed down on top rope made sense so top roped the top. Will be back to do it clean but too damn cold today!
