So, my experience on this date wasn't quite so pleasant, as I took a ground fall and broke my left ankle. I would strongly recommend avoiding it when it's green as there's little protection and it's difficult to retreat if you get pumped. A big thanks to everyone who was there and helped get me off the crag. I'll be back...(when it's not green)
