Hung a bolt when I got the beta wrong on the crux. My Kilnsey failure track record is left untarnished.

Warm up on Rachel's clips. Rather polished towards the bottom but a good route and feels a bit like a trad route in places due to the rock features. Bolts a bit too spaced low down.

Put clips in on lead. Not my style at all - surprised to see all holds are pretty much jugs. Good knee bars below the overlap. Slightly spooked by bolts spacing in bottom part.
