Enjoyed this even though I spent ages on the ledge trying to retrieve Kev's seriously overcammed friend!

Mist blowing off the hills and the sun coming through as we topped out. Lovely.

Second clean on sight (in hiking boots!) Hard jamming moves lead to easier slabby flakes above. High in the grade if you’re unused to jamming?

Totally unnecessary faff at the niche, knackered my arms and had to rest. Usually do this no problem.

My first Severe lead. Didn't look too bad from the ground but when i got to about 7 foot and couldn't find anywhere for gear i started to think S***t. Overall a great demanding climb but crap for gear.

Solid severe climbing, easy first moves on OK jams, up to the niche which has nice gear, then work out a sequence to pull over this which turns out to be unexpectedly easy and not particuarly stenuous! Finish is easy. Finding I can almost walk up these severes without much thought at all! Very nice moves throughout on some good gear, will be sure to do it again next time I'm up there! Dad followed with ease, yet again!

I'd seconded this several times and always found it a bit of a struggle, so I was surprised that I really enjoyed it on lead. Just goes to show that I climb better when leading.
