Those gritty cam placements under the bulge are wishful thinking

Didn't climb this correctly, line in old rockfax appeared to take left side of bulge which fizzled out, route proper trends right

After Phil traversed off top to left, tried to lead full route but fell off on final moves. Made it over on second attempt with a bit of 'traditional' technique - looks easier to come up on right of bulge as there's something that looks almost like a hold.

Spent an age on the top bulge, and ended up traversing off. Hol seconded it clean, using a different sequence of holds. Think I'd been trying in the wrong place!

excellent moves to gain the first ledge, but very polished footholds.very pumpy moves over the bulge but good gear.
