Lead 3 on the day - 'Big gear is useful' says the guidebook - no kidding! Two hexes in the middle and nothing else - long initial run-out and then sprint to the top - smooth lead only held up by looking around for (and largely failing to find) suitable gear!

Reached the flare at the top of the crack and found the holds and required foot jamming to be not too my liking. So I held on in an awkward position whilst trying to find an alternative sequence, for longer than I'd like too admit. Finally ran out of juice and took a fall, after a little rest re tried the sequence twice more. I'd fully worked out the sequence but by this time I'd destroyed my arms, fully pumped, had too admit defeat.

Repeated as second. Pretty tired but finished the route.
