Good lead by Chris. the slab is rather delicate. The top seemed okay but I suspect it might be a different story on the sharp end of the rope.

Bold little start then a harder than expected finish. Good route.
MDowson - Lead O/S - 03/Apr/11 with Jonathon Powell

The bush has covered up the top groove, finished via the opposite crack. The branch is cracking under it's own weight, it might fall off given time.
