Did the 5c no problems then spent ages placing gear after choosing the wrong size cam. Rested then slipped out of the VS jamming crack so lowered off.

Filled the crack with gear, so failed miserably. The gent in the flat cap was more magnanimous than i would have been when he soloed it!

when i got to the vs jamming crack i psyched myself out that i wasn't good at jamming, dithered too long and placed to much gear meaning i had to rest. i thought the start was thin but well protected.

This wasn't in my guidebook but I saw the chalk marks and guessed it was about about HS/VS. My thoughts after doing this climb were along the lines of "chuffing hell that was hard".
