Start felt full on despite only being a few feet off the deck!

Start did not feel 5a! Beyond the first 3-4m it settles down, and the top crack is really nice.

That start is nails! Got as high as a right hand in the upper section of the flake but feet were lost in the midst of nothingness.

Paul Hy 24/Oct/16 Lead dnf

the start is all off balance with no feet. I gave up after watching partner have 4 goes and me two. 5b start?

Damn hard moves to get off the floor. Fell off the overhanging flake to the floor. Polished smears are not exactly confidence boosters!

Did some version of this with an easier start I think

Start felt like a bouldery 5b. Crack above is straightforward.

Had to have a few goes at the start. Very thin gear until half way.

Lead the top half, used an easy way up as the first few metres seemed impossible.
