I bloody love/hate this climb. Insecure!
greenroom - 2nd O/S - 04/Apr/12 with Colin

Brilliant. Tenuous, slightly run out climbing up the groove, then a delightful move out to the arete above.
victim of mathematics - Lead O/S - 04/Apr/12 with Frith

The groove is definitely the crux; quite thin and the only bit which is away from gear. Overall a good short climb and very reasonable at the grade.
