Got a couple of photos of someone making short work of the first pitch of Sickle taken from the first belay on Hadrian's. If it was you then give me a shout and I'll send them over. You had a small blue rucksack on and I think had just abandoned following a couple of slow climbers up Point 5.
In reply to Ben Sharp: That was me. I didn't make short work of it though! I stupidly let my hands cool off dithering before getting on it, didn't bother to re-warm them, went numb on the first steep step and made a right flap of it. It all went much better after that happily.
In reply to tetley: Um, the start I guess, but mostly because of cold hands making it hard to swing cleanly. All went very quickly after that though I can imagine the pull out of the top of the steep section before the snow fields could be a bit scary without good snow ice above. We had pretty much perfect conditions so probably had it easier than you from the sounds of it though.
