Backed-off lead like a chicken then saw the crux done and the bit of gear I had previously discounted as off-route used. With Scott then getting it as his first HVS I ab'd to retrieve the gear and sent it myself without missing a beat. Lessons learnt.

Pretty good and with a fair bit independent climbing though not as good as the direct start (previously led) The move undercutting the flake is really good. Was impossible to tell if the gear was any good at this point due to light conditions.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 12/Jul/12 with Matt Fennelow

Need to have my bold head on to lead this one. Lovely climb though.
