First few meters are very strong. Foot slipped trying to step onto the starting crack.

Fell off the first time because I couldn't see my foothold once I climbed up past the big undercut. Wasn't a problem on my second go.

Went up, down, & finally fell off on painful jam. Stripped gear from ground (ish) & climbed Cursing the VS way instead.

Strange route. Very tough first few moves, then a bit of a ladder, then nice finish up the corner of Cursing. Tried to lead than got whole set of nuts stuck, Mills led and I had to hang as a second to get the nuts out again
