Not sure how much I was leaning on the rope ...

Was surprised to find that the flake was the easy bit. Good and generally well protected, although the reach up to the top ledge was made quite intense by the dearth of non-scrittly holds

Complete battle up all the way with one rest on the arete, too pumped. Desperate for HVS (RockFax Eastern Grit 2006) but acceptable gear for the first 3/4 of the way up.

Had to rest on the rope at the crux. Worked it out eventually, enjoyable move.

Got to the top crack and couldn't commit The holds got dead slimey.

Climbed the arete direct. Pumpy. Bit of a run out. Good fun.

Escaped up next route. Good line, but my lead head isn't quite there post-accident.

Top moves are worrying and not that well protected so I had preplaced gear above me - thanks mike!

Tried to lead - but failed to get good gear in on the Arete. Definately pumpy! Maybe even E1.
