Got to flake, not as good as hoped. Decided to get some gear in, fingers peeled as doing so. Jumped, landed on rock and bust my leg. Spiral fracture of tibia, broken fibula, 4 broken metatarsals. Thank you to Mark, Edale Mountain Rescue, and the NHS for all the help. I may not come back to finish the route.

Took ages to get the first move - far easier with a stiff shoe for the right foot in the pocket - but feels quite hard for V2 (or I'm just shit at techy stuff). Got to the hold above the flake and jumped off a few times, but wasn't psyched for the rest without a spotter and more pads.

Too short to reach starting crimp, too weak/heavy to make crux pull - winched up!!

Felt very hard for 5c, as well as sustained, took a bad fall from near the top and damaged my wrist.

fell a couple of times on early moves, bypassed the move to the right hand flake by moving up high probably reduces the difficulty at the start.

via some undercut trickery - satisfying but high enough that the mats look very small!

Tried couple of years ago but couldn't commit to the crux. Much better than it looks.
