Led P1 then we bailed because of torrential rain. Better than it looked. I dropped my shoes on the path down and watched in horror as then rolled all the way to the boulders at the bottom of the crag. Spent ages finding them in the pouring rain. Denied.

Hard start on loose rock, tech crux is the move on Halan. Very poor gear on exposed traverse to more looseness. Pretty full on experience but wwith more people on it, it definatly has potential.
