Almost too easy really! Probably on the Diff/Mod border-line. Some quite nice moves on the bottom section regardless. Nice sharp flakes to play about laybacking on smoothly. Was a really quick lead by my dad, I was determined to get one more route in before being benighted! All very efficient indeed!
