Not sure how to log this one... Climbed up to crux then it rained so lowered off. Lowered in to get the gear and top-roped out as doing that walk out once in one day was more than enough! Will be back to do it properly.

a sustained route; crux on 1st pitch is indeed the overhang, but crux on 2nd is not the hand traverse or the mantle to the ledge but the crack to the top

Speed climbing training route #1. 37minutes. Awesome route! First time a few years ago it took half the day. Double Cams up to Grey and one size 9 wire.

Mark followed the guidebook and went straight left from the belay. Do not do this. An edge broke off and he took a factor 2 onto my belay. Follow the crack for 3 metres and take an obvious finger crack left for 2 metres to the next crack.
