Good climb, run out in the middle, made the mistake of climbing too high an going into the break before following the ramp left, tricky down climb traverse then up the proper way. Good to know i can get out a bad situation.

Starts well with nice mantel move and lots of small gear, nice crux sequence across ramp (5c?) but then quickly becomes chossy, loose and ivy covered at top... not recommended....

My first proper fall onto gear, yay... shudder Before attempting the crux i thought I'd better just put in one more piece of gear and did so. This last piece of gear is the only one that stayed in. The other two ended up ripping out a chunk of stone. i ended up about 3 feet from the ground with Leighn hanging 2 feet above me.
