Dax 25 Jun, 2008 Lead dnf The guide says to traverse left under the over hang being carefull of the dubious flake. Well, no need to worry about the middle one .. it's fallen off - making the traverse look very technical. There was no way I was going attempt the traverse with the gear that I had at that point so had to down climb :-( Belayed from the top to retrieve kit. We got off the crag in the dark. Reckon this route is probably best taken direct at 4c .. I would have down climbed and attempted the direct version if there had been time.
