If you muffed the first real move you'd probably hit the deck. I protected it with a long preplaced side runner (thread) in the right hand side of the horizontal break.

Make that 'possibly' a 'certainly' if you've only clipped one double rope in. Best advice is to dive sideways into the heather if you feel yourself going - far more comfortable.

Speaking as a shortarse I found it ok, and a lovely route
