Laybacking the lower crack felt more logical. Worked up a green finger crack at the next section before gaining the arete, rather than walking up the slope. Working out onto the face of the pinnacle added to the top section.

layback in lower section felt really solid, awesome finish at the pinnacle and a great view!

Racked up in a hurry as the rain came sweeping across the valley. Reached the ledge with not too much difficulty, but it was too wet and windy and not enough gear and rope left to attempt the top tower.

Arrival of rain and lack of gear meant we had to stop 2m short of the top of the arete. Great layback moves up the crack.

Well protected challenging lower section, with one good rest on bomber jam just below the widening. Belayed on ledge to the right of the tower as gale-force winds precluded sitting on top, nevermind climbing it. Shame. Looks good though!

Didn't know how to jam in those days so I laybacked from bottom to top, slipped on lichen trying to get onto the belay ledge, ripped my top gear, and ended up at the bottom hanging upside down from a loop of rope that had wrapped around my ankle, just inches away from decking out.
