Awesome route, well worth its stars. fell off the end of the traverse first time round, didn't see the hidden pocket. Then had to rest one i had found it on second go becasue i was knackered. MUST COME BACK TO DO IT CLEAN.

Brilliant!Found much easier than I thought. Assumed the hand traverse would be slopers all along but very pleased to discover there was far more to hang on to. Pigeon nearly flew into my head, but fortunately had just got onto the big big jugs so didn't fall.
