Slightly sketchy start, but quite enjoyed. Glad to have prevented Mike from decking out

Tricky transition into a layback. I fell on 1st attempt clipping into my gear but prevented decking out from the 3m+ fall (just!) due to the quick reactions of my belayer! Brushed off and finished it after catching my breath.

The two huge blocks above the chimney are both very loose. That was not a nice surprise on the solo.

Had a bit of a mare. Was freezing fog and had to place gear then down climb to warm up. Pretty damp too, probably fun in good conditions

Charley's lead, Geoff seconded. Nice climb...I chose to arm bar the upper section where the others laybacked. Charley was pleased to have my huge cam for protection.
