Lead with some 50/50 pre-placed gear / my gear. A great route, looks deceptively easier from the ground!

Great fun. Would probably deserve three stars if it didn't fizzle out so much after the ledge.

Lovely rough rock on the first part, but the backs of my hands were suffering by this stage.

Pretty epic in the wet. So bad that Andy was afraid to second me up so abbed for the gear off a wobbly fence post.

nice again :) one of the few things I'd solo at millstone. Good way to get to the top of the crag to take some photos as the spare man whilst Rosie led Plexity.
