Fluffed the crux first attempt by going for something that looked like a really good hold that turned out to be nothing. Dispatched second go. Outstanding route!

Pumpy as hell. Crux felt more like 6a (our beta anyway). One to come back for and definitely a 4 star route.

Climbed too directly up crack, got very pumped and fell off -seems hard for E3 anyway! Topped out disappointed to be told that my car keys were lost-doh! 270 for a new set not the best end to a Lewis trip but we somehow made our flights to the Dolomites two days later.....
