Accidentally went direct through the overhang instead of traversing round it like I was apparently meant to. Good feet for it, but nearly fell off trying to find a handhold. Cool move.

Mind the scratchy bush! Seconded this cleanly after sarahlizzy led, but then ended up leading it myself to put the rope back up for the others. Got scratched in the back by the bush on both occasions. Lovely route apart from that.
