the rope from above dislodged a boulder onto my arm... This was all the excitement the route offered, very disappointing.

a route of two halves making a ground fall almost always a possibility. good old fashioned VS.
Dan Lane - 2nd O/S - 03/Jul/10 with Laurie Carefoot

Soloed after Fluke took two semi-ground falls trying to lead the start wall. Finished the top wall this time.

took a couple of goes to figure out that fingerlocks were the way forward (not lanky enough to just stretch past the second crack).
