lead first pitch as far as a belay with Little Plum, Jim lead as far as Rippemoff/Helicon were we abseiled off in the dark (late start + much faff) think you can continue about another 10 meters which may include the crux looking at an old guide. Great climbing what we did.

Interesting route, a bit bunched in places if tall, and hands are a bit polished and grotty in places. Gear fiddly and some in situ threads and pegs are in a poor way. Equipped thread for abbing off from at end of difficulties.
