12m. The left-hand side of the slab is precarious and balancy. The shallow upper groove is steep and awkward - crimp or layback. © Rockfax

Slightly damp and the bottom, but dry in the sun higher up. No gear till pretty much at top of slab. I was a bit sketchy in the groove.

I was shaking so much from fear that I fell off the slab about 3/4 of the way up! Slide wasn't bad at all and I just grazed my hand, so got back on and lead it all fine. Top section is hard, but the gear is very reassuring!

Good lead by Chris. the slab is rather delicate. The top seemed okay but I suspect it might be a different story on the sharp end of the rope.
