The main groove looked thin so I aimed for the ledge, meant I then had to climb this it! Really good torquing, placed 2 nuts and then gunned for the top. Felt tech 5/6 and one of my hardest leads.
joe.91 - Lead O/S - 12/Feb/13 with Olli Crudge, Moritz

Slid off the very top, so close to clean, although the rope was very tight for the rest of it.

Nick lead pitch 1 though I think he started too far left. I lead pitch 2. Climbed too high when I should have traversed and got stuck in a corner. Had to lower off tat back to the traverse then finished the pitch. Nick lead the final bit which was hard.
