Nick came outside with is for the first time (with us - not climbing). Rog did a very disco leg type lead and jammed some of the gear in real good. I seconded and left a bit of gear in for Nick to get out. Quite a strenuous one and a bit of a pull to the top once on the left hand corner crack. Foot placement requires some thinking as you get closer to the top but really nice climb and nice top out onto a big blocky rocks.
