On 2nd go... well, I fell right at the start on second go, so came down then did it. Some parts were quite damp/wet today with the high humidity, but enjoyed it : )

What an amazing route! Had a couple of top ropes and worked out the sequence. Nice little knee bar action (courtesy of Remus) to recover a bit for the top section. Worked out a good sequence for the top section and then promptly got it wrong and into an irreversible position which meant the only way was down! :-( need to get back asap before I forget my sequence. Can't wait
