βeta: Not much crack climbing on this route - fingery to the obvious niche at 12ft, v short crack followed by fantastic reachy pocket-pulling to the roof. Bolt does not inspire much confidence BTW!

Stefan_TR 25 May Lead O/S First trad lead in a while and you could tell! Didn't have enough quick draws, ended up putting all cams on one crab so I could use the other crabs. Got to the top and realised I had no belay plate. Enjoyed shouting down "Jim can you bring my belay plate up" as Tony was halfway up the pitch. Munter hitch worked well, first time I've belayed with it in anger.
