Chickened out near the top, felt steep and strenuous with a long powerful reach. I escaped onto the finish of the VS next door.

Steep with good moves. Thought I was going to come off on traverse across at top!

James Oswald 06/Nov/10 Lead O/S

Scary finish. Very horrible bellyflop. Come on James.

spragglerocks 06/Nov/10 Lead β

Finished left on the lead - too short to reach the good hold! Did the proper finish on the second.
