Misha 18 Oct, 2015 Lead O/S I thought the crux was up to the second bolt but may be that's just because I had slightly cold fingers. The section through the bulge is goey but it's all there. A bit of direction from Tim which way to go.

ksjs 10 Oct, 2009 Lead RP 1st go: dogged to warm up, trouble with move round bulge. placed 2 wires between top bolt and peg. 2nd go: that move above the 1st bolt felt fairly full-on, drop it and it might not be very nice (best done with first 2 bolts clipped) - proper concentration required. good climbing despite the poor bolting.
