Oh dear. Distinct lack of bottle following not climbing for a few months. After the traverse, went round to the right, climbed up, put some gear above, climbed back down and did the crux effectively on a top rope. Epic Fail.

Judging from the 'mixed' comments, I think some people go off-route to the right (which its rather easy to do). The independent line seemed quite bold to me, though my hands were a bit numb so things seemed more worrying than perhaps they should.
