Crux was quite intense - pumpy coming up the lower wall. Also, the huge thread is no more - it disintegrated (with no force) as I was threading it; fortunately the cove was quiet at that time in the morning and the bit I was holding on to didnt go. Anyway, still a big jug there and there is still good gear in the vicinity, but just no huge thread. Si

I think I made this a lot harder for myself by accidentally missing out a lot of the holds on the bulge.

One rest on the crux, felt a bit sick hanging on the rope over the abyss...

Had to pull really hard on the 'side of the groove' hold, to get established in the crack. Great position.
