Nice climbing, but strenuous traverse left on flat holds, and I had to grab the big cam Pippa had put in - maybe I could have lunged for the jug at the end of the traverse.

Retreated from the top of the "ladder", got it OK second go! Traverse is intimidating and bold, but not that hard as long as your feet reach the holds.

Really nice route. 1st pitch is easiest to solo (did the coldstream corner start) then big holds and big jugs in a nice setting.
