Tough and sustained. Went for the big jugs on the overhang and was swinging in air as one could not quite keep feet on slab!

Main slab is very smooth - was it like this when I first led it 8 years ago? Did the wild hand-traverse finish this time...a great way to finish off the route!

Not nearly as hard as I was expecting. There are some (small) footholds on the crux section. Swinging around on the jugs at the top made for a suitably satisfying finale

Very sustained lower down and dogged due to burn out in left calf. protection brilliant and roof section really enjoyable. Fantastic obvious line and should be a 3 star route.

Conan - Lead O/S - 07/Jun/11 with Clare A

Lovely tricky climbing but did the hardest move all wrong! After advice and several dodgy attempts managed to get over the slab. Using the top ledge to work round wasn't as bad as I thought.Will definitely try it again some time but still second!
