Did a few routes close to each other on top rope to end the day and avoid belaying from the top of the crag in the freezing wind. This is very easy.

Practised placing gear. I struggled with the final section of the crack and came out onto the face to finish on Mast Gully Butress (VS) to cries of Nick shouting 'Keep Left'!
