Kind of missed the first mantel-shelve, went more up the face instead. Took a *few* minutes to talk myself into the final move but was actually straight forward once committed...

loved this climb...not brave enough to lead it tho, but fantastic climb and no problem with it at all even though I'm short! :-)

There was no avoiding the mantelshelf this time! Nice route, but I think HS as in the guidebook?

Great fun - the second mantel looks easy from the bottom, but seemed slightly less straightforward when I was trying to use my mouth to suck on to the smooth wall behind it!

The top-out involved utilising my partner's leg loop as a hand hold and some very undignified beached whale impressions... bad day. But then I'll count myself as short and can't mantleshelf for anything
