I think I may have done it the hard way... bit of a wild slap with my right hand, a bit exciting! Did it again afterwards going again with my left which felt easier. Have wanted to get on this for years!

Suspect on-sight as I traversed off left after the big move up left to the jug, but lead it properly next go.

Done as a bit of a team ascent. Gear pre-placed and took a few lobs off before finding the crux hold.

Bouldered above a mat a few times, felt better each time but didn't feel confident enough to place secure gear. One to come back to.

Latched hold at top of long reach, but didn't have the go to get over will come back!

belayed dave on this an stopped two near ground falls. this route is pretty bold if you cant keep your feet on the lower footholds to place a high cam on the left before making the crux. good effort dave!

This should be E3 6a as it was - Marathon Man was alot easier.
