Enjoyable climbing up the shallow scoop. Use double ropes to take advantage of all the gear placements. © Rockfax

I liked the sequence through the middle section, possibly a bit reach-dependent. I expect there is gear in that bit but it would have interrupted the flow so I ran it out a bit.

Really good climb and chuffed to have nailed it first go. Apparently said to be E1, not sure how though.

Climbed in a freezing wind and spitting rain.

Still enjoyable. Apparently gear placements weren't as easy on other climbs. Felt easier climbing than earlier HS (lay me back) although that may be a combination of different style and the fact that lay me back is in need of some gardening.
