Pretty scary as the features on the wall make an S but the bolts are in a straight line, so it feels like you're straying left and right with lots of ledges to swing into. Repeated on top rope and taking a more direct line is the same difficulty. Must feel very dicy for a 5+ on lead - especially the top.

I fucked up. Was meant to be the warm up but I went off route left on the middle section. Got pumped due to improper utilisation of rest points. Really fucked up the end got to the top but traversed right to some rubbish holds. Overly pumped from climbing to fast and on a finish I wasn't prepared for I fell off smashing myself into the ledge badly winded with a bruised arse and ego was lowered to the ground. I did finish as I got the lower off I just found a quicker way down. Spent the rest of the day trying the start of a 6C+ got to the second bolt a couple of times so much more fun. Lessons learnt stupid mistakes cost lives. Today I was the twat who made the mistake and survived. Very lucky

The lower-off is set back above the top of the wall, making it a scary mantel top-out. I backed off as I didn't fancy falling onto the big ledge below.
