Really polished and hands greasy with skin-so-soft didn't help - Midges were out for a death.
Milesy - Lead β - 13/Jun/12

heywoodj - 2nd β - 29/May/12

Great climbing but couldn't do it cleanly. Could blame that on it being hard and very polished but really due to recovering from injury. Great climb for mastering back stepping!
