Climbed to retrieve a stuck nut left by another club member, rested on a nut I placed to remove stuck nut, the nut I placed popped, fell on gear 2m below. Second couldn't remove nut I fell on so I had to ab in and spent 15 minutes removing the nut I fell one, all in all a lot of faff for stuck nuts....

Forgot my climbing shoes, started up this one and made excuses to come down. Followed John up, good climb really. Agree with others who are saying it's harder than VDiff. I'd have called it a Severe.
