βeta: If I remember this correctly it was both hard for the grade and scary, although good climbing.

Reaver2k 3 May, 2008 Lead O/S Extremely happy with this, I normally have huge head problems when running it out, and with this one, I could see it was going to involve the harder moves on runout ground but took it head on. And abolutely loved it! I will have to tackle more of these headgames I think! Lovely interesting rock with odd pockets all over the place. Some brilliant traversing moves from the left lead to a few quick steps up to the top. 4b is about right, not 4c, and the mantle out of the climb is the hardest move! Dirty heather finish! Very happy boy after a brilliant day!
