I got 5 rp's in on the lower wall (including a #0 that Mark happened to have on his rack). Surely one of them would've held. The middle section of this is quite nice but not long enough and then there's the dodgy block.

Tricky to figure out. Went pretty easily on the second go. There is a good cam under the roof. It's a bit tricky to see exactly where but it's a #1 camalot about 1m right of the "tooth" flake. It's also a bit perplexing figuring out where to go over the lip of the roof. Good route altogether. Great rock apart from the one flake under the roof which probably won't go anywhere.

23 Break a Leg

Committing up the last 5m. You definitely want a 0.4 or 0.3 camalot size piece after the crux to get you to the anchor. You might not break your leg but it probably wouldn't be fun to fall off. You can get down with a single 60 if you do a short rap leftwards to GB's anchor then a second rap from there. You might reach from the top anchor on stretch (we didn't try).

I went too far right trying to avoid Fish Disco the first time. Got it second go. You actually climb left of the crux bolt, over near the bolt on Fish Disco. A couple of thin pulls at the crux, very hard for 22. The next section after the bolt has thin and fiddly gear (1 and 2 RPs) and feels a bit committing.
