2 pockets as only holds & runners - weird but awesome! Found crux very reachy - 5c? Didn't bother trying to faff around threading top pocket and just went for top.

Finally led it clean. Still really hard for the short and really hard to thread the final pocket without stuffing it up as a handhold. At least 5c.

Brilliant little micro route, definitely 5c to get between the pockets. Take thin slings and something to pull at them with, though at least the tricky thread is the lower one!
JamieSparkes - Lead O/S - 14/Oct/12 with CCJohnD
Faffed for ages on second pocket threading cord, slipped out just as I threaded it through. I should of used smaller tat and key to hook... got back on and finished it fine, grrr.

6a to link the pockets for the short I reckon, fun route.

thought the reachy direct start was the crux (5c). reach to get the 2nd pocket wasn't to hard if you move your feet up (lay-backing/smearing)! My threaded nut in the 2nd was hard to place and took up half the hold. Not as good as i expected it. One to do again to see if it is better 2nd time round??
