Led this time. The middle section felt much scarier on lead, very little for the hands so you are forced to trust those feet. Ahh!

A significant rock fall has removed the roof and raised the ground level making the start much easier. Unfortunately the second bolt has gone and the first is only a few feet above the ground.

Had a close look and a little test of it, but top-roping caused the rope to run over some rock. Would like to go back.

Tried to follow the line for diamond geezer but couldn't see the bolts, but this line looked far more interesting. The first few moves onto the slab are excellent. Despite the good holds i thought the start deserves more than F4.
