Had been for a swim and Jen and Phil kindly let me climb up out of Subluminal with them. Turns out I knew Phil from 12 years back.

Always wanted to come down here. Lovely atmosphere. Dave went for a swim while I led the route and brought up Monica.

Bit of a non route. Not many feet on the step off, but that's where the fun starts and ends.
