Led this in June. One of the best routes on Owey at its grade I think. Exorcised the ghost of 20 years ago when I carried a large rock from the top half way down the face.

Finally got the to do this proper today. I know now why I went up the flake crack the last time. Gear isn\'t as good as I would like at the crux for a VS but I still really enjoyed it.

Did this at the climbfest but went up the large flake crack above the overhang to the left of the corner.Great way to go maybe HVS 4c.
