Looked at it on the Saturday and fancied doing it after doing Fakir's Groove. Tricky for the grade rather than hard although foot holds on left need care. Takes good gear and well protected as far as the shelf at the top which has a prickly bush on it in which one of the ropes became tangled and hard to pull up. Easy finish from there to belay.

Had to think about gear placements. One or two moves over overhang. need to keep ya head though!
Rock Fairy - Lead - 08/Apr/07 with me

Nasty climb, quite bad gear placement, first bit of gear was 6 ft of the ground and second bit 6ft from the top, main break needed cleaning in order for good gear placement
