Rog Wilko 24 Jun, 2009 Lead Omitted pitch one and ran 2,3 & 4 together. Route was bone dry and not at all thrutchy (contrary to appearances.) The corner is a delight, with some amazing and unexpected holds and lots of good gear (you don't need several huge cams). The traverse and finishing crack are exciting and superbly positioned. Thoroughly recommended in these conditions and worth 3*.
