Found good beta for the start - with knee bar. Found last section hard.

Onsight-ish - had already done the direct version. This is actually better than the direct version in my humble opinion. The traverse moves are really good. Does make stripping the route awkward though.

1st RP after nabbing Sam's beta. Quality.

Sam Marks 29/May/13 Lead RP

Excellent, our first proper foray onto limestone. Climbed it bolt to bolt, and then lead on my 2nd RP (I think that's how it works?) Fell right from the end of the traverse on my first attempt, which was exciting, should have rested after doing it bolt to bolt.

Slipped off as I pulled on, so taking a flash rather than onsight, what a tube!
