I cant believe how much trouble I have with climbing on grease, always petrified and climbing poorly on it..yet more amazed by my insistence to keep climbing on it!

Believed this to be the easy option compared to the more classic options. Was not te walk in the park I expected, but was actually pretty good.

Ross backed-off leading it, I cleaned the gear on a top-rope. Particularly steep & stiff in the wet conditions.

A few sequency moves in the middle give the route a bit of character and put it towards the upper end of the grade.

Fell from the crux (gear held - yay!), Pete had a go did the same. Then I had another go, this time trying to climb quickly without hanging about on every hold for too long. It worked.
