Becks87 23/Oct/16 2nd O/S

Felt like a scramble up until the very last section, which had quite a few loose bits to watch out for.

atom 23/Oct/16 Lead O/S

Was starting to think it was very easy for a Severe but the very top is a run out and rock is friable

Nice climb, right traverse gets lovely and airy at one point. Final moves a bit dodgy as a large handhold is loose and unusable.
