one of the best vs's around. a fantastic sequence of well protected moves on steep rock in a great position
Alex@home - Lead O/S - 05/May/07 with neil

First onsite VS A couple of brown trouser moments, would probably have been fine if I thought it was HS. Made one more move upwards before going across for the crux, which i found a lot easier, the top is easy, i just got a bit un-nerved!
