Climbed down from a metre or so below the first bolt - although it wasn't very difficult, it was just too scary to solo - and capitulated to the clipstick. This combination of top-roping and leading makes no sense to me as a game, especially on a short route where the first bolt is like a third of the way up, but whatever. The rest of it was at least bolted in a friendly way. The climbing was quite nice apart from the horrible top move squirming around in a groove.
