Too balancy for me low down. And pretty polished as well. After the lower crux, the rest was fine.

First two bolts with a few drops of rain, then it started to pour. Felt the crux was well out of the way but everything too wet to climb. Clipped a far right bolt just below the belay and went up to the jug. Fun finish to the day.

Couldn't figure out the move up to the 2nd bolt so came back down. Nick then led. I seconded the route. Could have done with more support from my boots .. something to consider.
