Great climb easy for HVS but the gear is paced and you can't get your first piece in for about 10m.

Dave decided to lead it as well for some mileage, having hardly been able to get out at all so far this year.

A superb pitch, though the gear isn't that great. one of the best at its grade in the valley, with in-situ lower off
