Rockfax Description
18m. The steep initial crack of Counter Intelligence runs straight up into the final tough groove of Master Spy and provides a sustained and strenuous way up the cliff, arguably the best hereabouts, certainly the superb line takes some beating. © Rockfax

Left the gear in after doing Counter Intel (which I found easier than this) because I'm lazy and life is too short.

A bit tough with no warm up. Took several flyers from the top above the "jam of justice" : )

I used the arete on the right a couple of times, this could well mean I didn't do it properly but it was well within reach and without it would have felt utterly nails...
