EdC 24 Nov, 2018 Lead dnf An absolutely horrendous experience in the wet. A little difficult to judge from the ground just how wet and slimy some seemingly critical holds were. Got stuck, attempted to aid off gear, ended up with lowered top rope, moving off route onto the neighbouring route and came out very damp and very green. Highly unrecommended when wet.
