Onsight apart from the top-out (shared with Tinsel's Tangle). What a lovely route!

Bit sustained. Good gear and great climbing. Liked it.

Had to take a short rest after spending ages trying to hack out Matt's bomb proof nut! Good fun climb, slightly pumpy section in the middle, balancy move towards the end. Same walrus maneuver finish as Tinsel's tangle (same as my earlier lead - except Matt actually got some pro in!) - felt a lot better going over the top without the entire rack weighing me down!
