Be Aware! I managed to pull off a large ish bit of rock right at the top above the anchors. It 'was' part of the same rock that the anchors are set in. Might not be as solid as it looks! Nice Climb though.

2nd go, tried to lead afterwards but too tired. Pretty dusty to start with but better now after a bit of a clean and a few ascents.
