Lead it without knowing what it was. Shouldn't have rested but the last bolt to finish required some forethought!

Lower off has become damaged. Looks like someone has bent the bar down, so have to thread it in a traditional way. Nice climb. One hard move and overall felt easier than some of the 6as. Video of it being top-roped to strip it at https://vimeo.com/70200869

The thin crack was seeping...meant the finger lock felt incredibly insecure resulting in me resting on the rope.

Gigga - Lead dog - 25/Jun/11 with Dan, Nick

Worked out can clip bolt to right of lower off before moving up to the lower off. Means the last move is not a scary as when I tried it before.
