Foot slipped off, all gear pinged out. Lucky I had a surgeon along to deal with my wounds.

Zero protection ... Top-rope or solo ... there is no lead.

the start of the ground is a little awkward and the only hard move

Never want to lead this... run out is not the word... sketchy slippy shit!

Big holds, but still very wet. easier after first initial move.

Climbed with Lawson after work - found it quite easy for an HS - start is the crux

Started from crack to left (right hand edge). Very few gear placements at start, until very nearly at oak tree on ledge. Rock looked very underused.
