Got it 2nd go as foot popped off after the 2nd bolt on my first attempt. Lowered off and re-climbed it. Tricky moves up the groove at the start - nice jugs to finish.

Hard awkward move into groove where I fell first time. Annoying. the top half is over hanging on huge jugs. good fun
richy85 - Lead RP - 26/May/14 with Darkin

Just when I thought I 'got' slate this thing confused the hell out of me. Need to come back again though, the top looks great fun if I can only get there - only a move away.
