Needs a couple more bolts at the bottom. I used what I think were the first 2 bolts of the, now fallen, 'That Hollow Feeling' then moved left to pick up the proper line of bolts. Luke cleaned but James climbed the true route which was much easier.

Failed on this just below the belay station as I wasn't comfortable with making the final move in the (soaking) wet. Do-able though as Robin proved straight after.

Only climb of day, damp when Tim led it which made it difficult. When I seconded it rained quite hard and pretty much everything became useless! Somehow managed it but feet slipped off a lot.
