Top draw this, often wondered what it was like at the top of here since seeing fred soloing it, there's no way you'd get me past that overhang safety or not!!

Nice one.

Fantastic stuff guys. You wouldn't get me up there but I'm glad someone took the rare opportunity to do it.

PS. I can see my house from up there
