Climbed this a tad inelegantly; the holds are quite rounded so ended up doing a couple of quite awkward mantle moves between ledges. Climb is decent though, if not the most inspiring line.

This line is crowded in with others, so I might have slightly wandered onto neighbouring routes. Oh well, it was quite fun.
