βeta: Really rather nice, though spoilt a bit by the dirty top- out. As to the difficulty short- arses will find it a lot harder.

βeta: If you muffed the first real move you'd probably hit the deck. I protected it with a long preplaced side runner (thread) in the right hand side of the horizontal break.

Double Knee Bar 5 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S Within seconds of topping out the heavens opened and suddenly I found myself under 5' of water. I was in a strange situation where I could safely swim down the crag and retrieve my gear. Much to the amusement of Mr Bond who chuckled from the shelter of a nearby cave as I risked a 2000,000, V shock from Thor.

lizzyb 28 Mar, 2012 Lead dnf Felt like an elegant crux move (the one referred to as particularly perplexing/not well protected), slid down when almost through the move but messed up balance pushing to far back rather than straight up on left leg not quite reaching hight enough up to the break to stop the slide.
