'Saved' this for a while. Cold hands getting into groove focused the mind.

Found it hard moving round the arÍte to get established before rocking up into the niche.

slightly worried about the heel toe, but just had to stop being a pussy. v3 tick

still quite nervy with the heel/toe lock but had good spotting. hung around looking at top out round the corner, very windy day however so that's for next time.

Ground up with pads. With or without them the top niche is a scary place to be!

bottled it many times in the past, a bigger pad made it a lot easier!

Finally committed to the rockover and mantel. helped by the polish guys huge pad which made it just a well padded highball :o) not that hard after the beginning - just feels scary - topout didn't seem that scary except for people shouting instructions at me from all angles. Well pleased :o)

A must do if you go to the place. Such good climbing which is high enough for interest but low enough you can just go for it with pads!

Dropped off at the break for the V3 tick. Found the start very powerful!
