did the vdiff direct route. finger jammed pull up around the bulge freaked me out for about 10 minutes until I managed a palmed leg up with the right hand which made things a bit easier. 1st lead on grit.

Did the direct,thought we were on a diff,so was surprised to find I had to finger jam to pull over the bulge! "that`s definitely harder than Diff Geoff,I take it all back about you needing 4 runners on a Diff!" ha ha

To free ab rope after abseiling down Somersault to free a stubborn wire. Could have walked up the descent path in quicker time, but were's the fun in that?
