Couldn't get passed the layback and move to the left hand jam above after 3 attempts and went up big crack on left to retrieve all the gear. Wet and tricky..will try again in the dry....not sure if I could even if it was dry.

12:14 route 16. Struggled to pull up from the bottom of the crack into the jam/layback section. Slipped off onto a one arm jam at one point. Wasted energy; there must be an easier way.

Rested on gear at beginning section, took a bit of working out. Did it in the end. But did it a bit differently to how it looks like it should be done...missed out the jamming crack on the crux by bridging and using a small edge for left hand.

Very committing move into the layback, and hard work pulling on the jams. Though it was really hard.
