Lead on Sam's gear. Steady.
farmus21 - Lead - 10/Apr/15 with Peter Hill, Sam Radcliffe

not bold or hard enough to be E3. low end E2. easy moves to a bolt then some bomber RP's a few meters later to protect a couple of mildly technical moves. Good line though.

Got it first try on top rope, keen to lead it next time i'm there - wasn't confident for the onsight, and after top roping was glad i didn't try it on lead before having a go !

Quality route even on top rope. Would have gone for the lead but lower section very bold and found it the hardest part.
