Felt very hard for 5C at the bottom! I ended up going straight up rather than trending let at the top. Not sure how it altered the route but either way it felt extremely bold!

Waist high side runner before going into the crux layaway move, E2 this way, likely groundfall without! Took ages committing to the move but turned out to be ok if reachy. Also took a while committing to the last move on the slab, partly because there were quite, a few options, turned out to be quite easy in the end - 5b? Good moves but the route is a bit eliminate due to proximity to the easier climbs on either side and and is spoilt by an easy section in the middle, so not worth 3* in my book.

Shaw Brown - 2nd - 15/Oct/11 with Loz
Tarnished ascent grabbing R arete with R hand on final move. No E3 tick, need to come back to do it properly, if I can be bothered. Didn't feel very 3*. No line, lacking in gear at the start, escapable to L or R and question of what constitutes as side runners. Do wires in the thin cracks on the R of the slab count? Would feel like an artificially extended run out without them.

Without side runners. The crux on the lower wall feels very bold but I was assured I wouldn't hit the ground. Upper slab is quite easy until the final move..... but really if you do the bottom you'll find the top trivial.
