Tried to onsight but fell after the last bolt a couple of moves from the lower off. Good fun if perhaps unbalanced.

Tentatively trying to protect knee.. not successful!

Great climbing, with the crux saved for the top. 3rd go.

I'm pretty sure after reading the comments that I headed up this rather than 'A Ship load of Moonies' as I originally intended to. No rock had collapsed at the start, the two first bolts were about level with each other (and not shared), and I was hanging in there until the last clip, albeit voguing a little for the last couple metres. Then came a bit with tiny sidepulls, not much feet, and square- cut pinches to aim for. Gave up after a couple tries.

Hard. Climbed well up to the crux (at the top, as others have mentioned) on the first go. I probably managed to do all the moves to the top, but didn't link many of them together. Had a second go, but only got one move higher than the first.

felt pretty hard at the top, holds very smooth and a bit greasy.
