Awkward top move & felt quite scary while soloing

Did that while waiting for Rob who was getting really late bringing the gear and ropes so just couldn't wait any more. A bit tricky at the end, but managed to pull it out in the end. Nice route for first timers or as a warm up.

Fun climb, very well protected, with one difficult move 2/3 of the way up, decent gear blow it however making it fun rather than scary, nice two trees belay at top. Really enjoyed.

Protected climb, but it was hard to find some of the handholds. Removing and tying to replace leaders gear made it even more interesting.

Straightforward until the crux. Very loose flake at the top, good top move without the hold, but not Severe.

Stuggled to do the top move, got informed by my partner that his belay wasn't that great, so downclimbed it, was offered to adjust belay, but it really wasn't worth the effort in the long run, not the nicest of climbs, got rained off, went to The Works!!
