Very wet at the start, took several attempts to find enough friction to stand up.

The mantle at the start of the route was interested as the useful crimp was full of mud! Wasn't sure of the exact line at the top so I tried to skirt the overhang on the right, this proved to be an error as a hold exploded in my face! After managing to prevent myself from falling off I went left which seemed fair at the grade.

A big flake 3 m up broke off while Colin was standing on it. Start is now harder, possibly the crux, but still in keeping with the rest so no change of grade.
