Hidden - Lead O/S - 20/Apr/13

Nice route, but had a strange experience. Hand slipped off one of the top slopers and I swung down (gear in the crack on the right). Totally unexpected and very strange (as I felt comfortable / confident with the moves), but might have been due to a lack of concentration and the grittiness of the hold (maybe things were a bit greasy after all the rain recently?). Went back up and finished it after the lob.
