Clean on sight. Easy and well protected – used arête for right footholds. Long walk to anchor stake so put in a re-direct with a sling around a spike.

Plenty of placements. Although did not take enough slack out of rope on setting up belay and when second came tight on rope I was almost pulled over edge. Bit of excitement. At least second would have broke my fall!!!! (sorry mate)
