Great little route. Steep fist jamming and a slopy top out

Dogged it 3 years ago. Hung at the top 2 years ago. Finally led it clean this year but injured myself topping out!

Attempted as first VS lead. Dented my hand. All of my gear was too small for the crack.

Not sure whether I can claim this clean or not, managed to get to the top but then once there had to rest on the rope to remove a very stuck nut!

valentinesbabe 21/Mar/12 Lead dog

OMG...thought it had dried out as the bottom was only slightly moist....the further up it I went, the damper and slimier it got...had to rest on the gear a couple of times.

charley 21/Mar/12 TR O/S

Ange's lead. Obviously I did everything I possible could do to avoid jamming it... Glad I didn't have to mess about placing or removing gear...

with JackD, Ange
Keendan 21/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Thought is was really hard, especially near the top. Maybe should have moved right at that point.
