Failed on the lead - head not in it for the run out at the top. Climbed it clean after,and when I got the top moves they were lovely and secure. Will get aclean lead next time.

A bit scary in places. Nice climbing, but the run-out at the top is quite scary and was too much for me. DNF

long run out to L.O. kept down climbing to clip before finally going for it - all in the head!!

Great route, although the bolt spacing leaves alot to be desired in many places (as with most of this crag it semms) but the finishing few moves to reach the anchor are very cool.
