Very hard start! Both had a few shots at the start, Keith finally made it.
Sarah Greenwood - 2nd dog - 01/Oct/15 with Keith Alexander

Start required the use of my first heel hook in anger on a trad route, so this definitely gets a thumbs up from me! Pumpy start if you're not warmed up, much easier after that. Rock in perfect nick tonight. Great route.

Rests to get gear in, a bugger of a start.

A bold start, getting the feet right is awkward and can make this feel 5c.

Made a complete pig's ear of trying to lead the first pitch. Gave up just before the angle relented and got lowered off a shaky no. 6 rock. Andy subsequently lead it and made it look easy!
