Climbed just on the face, which was quite good
monsteratt - Lead rpt - 16/Jun/11 with John Munro

Straightforward. Brambles at the top left me with dubious-looking scratch marks that I had to explain to Ruth! :-) Nic did a lovely second with some very good footwork towards the top. This would be much harder with a direct line rather than to the right.
