<< Point Taken
 
The Echoes >>
[Breaking the barrier, 2 kb]26m. An enjoyable & varied route which would make a good first extreme. From a low triangular foothold, ascend the vertical cracklines in the centre of the slab, making a tricky step rightwards just above half height. Finish on good holds up the steep corner above.

adamre12 - Lead dog - 28/Sep/13 with Chris Nutman

Stuck for ages about half way up on very small holds, unwilling to commit to what seemed like a very hard move above micro wire. Was thinking I would have to lower off the micro wire when some guys below pointed out that there we're holds over to the right. Perfectly fine when I actually went the right way.
