[...and failing miserably, 3 kb]The first line 'off' the traverse in, and a brilliant intro to the great game of DWS, with easy access, a mid-height crux and a solid top-out. Try to avoid a cheating sequence rightwards at two-thirds height; the top finishing groove is damn good! © ROCKFAX

Watched Chris climb it flawlessly, then did the same. Great route. The water was considerably higher than the last time I attempted it, which helped reduce the feeling of exposure. Still, I wouldn't have wanted to fall off the top.

Two footholds disintigrated, a tough 6a+ and a bit crumbly I thought.
