A smug leader belaying really helps the topout
Thoms6974 - 2nd O/S - 30/Aug/14 with Dave S

entertaining, with plenty of interesting bridging opportunities. Good gear all the way up (can't see it til you get on with it) with no real need for overly large cams(>4")steady at HVS

Proper old-school offwidth thrutch at the top. Sure there are more elegant ways to do it.

followed toph's solo so maybe top rope is more appropriate
