Good thing Sam (assuming that is indeed Sam?) has got his imaginary rope + gear protecting him - without those it'd be a seriously bold proposition!!

It is Sam, would have been a cool shot without the harness, he was just too keen!

Cracking shot. Makes it look huge. First time I saw it I thought glorified Boulder problem, but it didn’t feel like that for the 2nd ascent onsight in non sticky rubber. One hard move but quite scary. Good effort Gary.

I thought best to put a harness on as I was due to be married the following week! Safety first!

It's a placebo harness.
