Rockfax Description
The attractive shallow seam/runnel that crosses the slab diagonally rightwards gives a good little pitch that surprisingly is easier to foot-traverse than to hand-traverse. Variations exist. © Rockfax

Decided to give the lead ago after seconding Marc. Completely missed the number 3 nut placement mid route which was Marc's only bit of gear, maybe due to our height difference. Not something I'll be making a habit of!

Really nice climb, looks quite improbable from below. Very good lead by Andy.
