Managed to reach the end of the crack system but for the life of me couldn't find a way to move left to finish on tired arms.
Sannan75 - TR dnf - 27/Jun/12 with Timea Sloboda

Nice climb was a bit damp here and there. Not sure there is a 5c move on the route and on the day I found the crux to be the bottom rather than the top as others seemed to find. There is a good rest at the break the splits the second crack if you can jam.
