Double cam in the initial break before the traverse, then hex in the shelf before the crack. Mustn't run things out so much

Really enjoyable climb, struggled to get into the cave at first as it was a little narrow with my trad rack etc, managed to find a little hold and came out first before standing up. Traverse was nice, but I was very happy to put a cam in at the end of it as it felt a little shakey.

Been looking to do this again for a while now! Didn't make it look particuarly easy! Always struggle with the wriggle into the cave, I do it with a pull up, onto my belly and a beach whale mantle onto the ledge, very elegant. Now I'm leading VS, I felt alot more confident moving across the traverse though, spent a while fiddling some gear in before deciding which way to go, stepped up to just below the roof then out right, then up the rest of the crack. Lovely route and will almost certainly do it again soon!
