Tim Hamlet - Lead - 28/Jul/14 with Laura Hamlet

Got the line wrong and started up the E4 to the left, got to the bolt and started up the crack but decided to back off. Lowered off the rusty bolt and did the right route. Seemed a bit rubbish.

crux is at the top. feels bolder than it is. The lower section is no harder than 4c although gear placement is behind wobbly and broken blocks. classic slate
