pumpy climb, perhaps graded harder than it is, but probably due to rock type

Placed trad gear between the 1st and 2nd bolt, but overall the best line I did here.
a13x - Lead O/S - 18/May/10 with Matthew Gibbings

inexperience led to this becoming my nemesis for a while , but cracked it on very first lead attempt.

I think its F5b+ in the guide - which would make sense as I dont do F6b+ with those runouts!!

Sand in eyes- just after laser operation not a good idea!
