Superb. Good rock and possibly easier for the vertically challenged.
Ian Jones - Lead O/S - 11/Jul/15 with Shauna Clarke (DCSC)

Narrowly avoided disaster! Placed a cam behind the flake up and left of the crux roof/corner and promptly fell off. Cam exploded a big chunk of the flake off the wall and I skimmed the deck, held by cams in the break below and right of the roof and good belaying!! Not sure if the difficulty of the route will have been affected or not. The thinner hanging flake directly above the crux roof looks even dodgier...

fun rest in the corner because being a short arse pays sometimes, don't get stuck behind the rope getting out. clumsy start.
