Took rest below crux mainly due to lack of confidence. Turned out to be OK, gear a bit fiddly.

There was one tricky move to make or break this climb, but the gear was decent enough so fairly straight forward it you commit to it.

Nice little route. Trickier than expected with less than reassuring gear for the crux.

Disappointed - couldn't figure out the crux move despite multiple attempts. Nic led it in the end. Still found it hard on the second. Still don't think I sussed out the correct moves.

with Nic Basnett
munki1971 08/Apr/10 TR O/S

tight rope on the crux - not quite a rest but not far off it...

Slaney 08/Apr/10 TR O/S

Although top-rope I would agree with all comments posted - certainly one to lead.

Great overhang- balls required
