Charlie led this in 2 pitches. Brilliant moves and exposure out on to the nose and up the cracked slab. Evening sun. Ropes jammed abseiling down barbarian, should have walked, the descent is ok.

Lead pitches 2, 4 and 5 (together). Moves out onto prow and up slab above are fantastic, made all the more exciting by (what felt like) gale force winds. Best route of the weekend.

Toni started but went left after the groove instead of going right onto the rib. Then she got stuck and had to climb down which was difficult and upset her. I then lead the pitch to the tree, then p2 to the next tree then I combined p3 & p4 out over the nose and up the cracks in the slab. took belay below the chimney, brought toni up then she led p5; the chimney. Excellent climb, p4 was great with good exposure out over the nose. Cracks in the slab above were quite polished but plenty of gear on the entire route.
