down climbed early in the day from the good flake in the middle of the wall wherei got a small cam but this used up the best hole, MTFU and took the cam out and it was an easy strech up. lovely finish on the juggy roof with some one handed monkey noises like Marin Kocis! (see page 23 of the 07 guide)
