Froze on a semi-committing move, used a piece of pre placed gear above, realised move wasn't actually bad. - MUST GO DO AGAIN PROPERLY!!

Committing - one piece of low gear would not stop you hitting the ground on the crux move.

Adam led Robin Hood's Staircase but as it finishes in the same place I followed on the direct route.

Given VS 4c in the latest BMC guide, which is odd, because a) it's easier than 4c and b) it shares all of the hard climbing with Rubber Band, which is VS 4b in the same guide. Either way it's a bit short lived, and there's no gear until you're at the top after all difficulties.
