last move felt a bit dodgy with the potential for a biggish fall. a bit too close to the severe next door

Just couldn't commit to the top move above a crap cam...escaped off left and then seconded it after Shane had done it. The move felt easy with a top rope!

Grade very dependent on how far R you go. I went quite far R. Good moves but you could step on to Slab and Arete between each sequence.

A stiff start, particularly for the short. Slab finish is rather eliminate, but not too bold with modern gear. Worked out line & placements for finish while seconding Slab & Arete. Cleaned out slot for good micro cam.

Crack was hard but ace, didn't fancy the slab so finished up the arete of Slab and Arete. Guidebook said this combination is E1 5b.
