Real adventure. Did First pitch fine, freaked out slightly on the 3rd as scale and complexity of cliff becomes apparent. Cunningly avoided the crux and perched block of pitch. Belay ledge for crux pitch totally amazing. Let Ben have lead despite head game recovery. Final alpine ridge real surprise.

Led pitches 2, 4 and 6! Amazing experience. Very bold but the stances were good and the climbing fantastic in great positions!

A very good day out in perfect weather. OK technically but serious for HVS. 4c/5a climbing with poor gear. P4 seemed very hard for 4b (nearly 5a?).

Rather early in the season so very aromatic. Most exciting once beyond the main nest zone.

A team of 7 of us on a big Rock and Ice day out. I recall Dez doing battle with a Shag with his peg-hammer (pre bird ban days of course) The Shag won!
