Very ballency route. Finished up the direct finish, it gets crumbly after the 2nd bolt

Runner between the two bolts was behind a very flaky flake - no chance it would have held. Pretty spicy run out with definite groundfall potential.

Fell off the first time as I didn't read the guidebook and went the wrong way into a blank section of rock. Oh dear!

bold, bold, bold but the hardest move is protected by a bolt. i didn't clip the second bolt - doh!

In an exposed and intimidating position! Found this very bold and run out! Techy and balancey all the way up.

lead on alasdair's qdraws.. a tricky route, the climbing never eases off enough to relax.. high anxiety most of the way up..

Another good climb. Really nice to finish direct through Sweetest Taboo but I opted for the normal finish.
