Using a sling harness was not much of an issue on this as it is basically a solo.

Was pretty much pitch dark by the time I did it-with a bit of illumination from onlookers head torches. Another climb where my short arms made it harder!

soft, but nice, the flake is a bit bendy :o Also did 27-4-17 but went left at the top avoiding the bendy flake.

Glad I was only seconding. Bold climb on lead.

Tricky move leaving the ledge if you can't reach the good edge.
