My 2nd epic on this route after it raining the first time in 2011. The ropes snagged and wouldn't pull down so we managed to lead on the few metres excess, which got longer as we ascended. Took 3 pitches of hanging belays in 4c positions, a right laugh! Beside all that it's a second to none VS, class. I climbed it quicker in the p**sing rain last time, that was a laugh an all. Jinx route haha!!

Abseiled to the bottom and the rain started. Climbed using the abseil rope for assistance. Great climb in stunning location. Will be back
