nice challenging route. Made a mess of the move in the middle the first, fine the second!

Reaver2k 30/Mar/08 Lead O/S

Bit of a beast for a 4c move! Didn't find gear that hard to place although you are quite pushed out, took quite some time working out the top moves, which involved some odd footwork, a kind of layback and reach for the top. My route reading has deffonately improved, I stopped, assessed the situation and carried it out just how I was hoping to so happy! No stars? Atleast 1 maybe 2, a little heathery on the top but adds to the fun!
