Lovely sunny day, warm, touch of wind. Perfect conditions. First climb of the day, made for a nice warm up. Protection wasn't very good, but was a nice easy climb.

Matt led this in true Matt style, no gear! I think he got one piece in 2 metres from the top, then it fell out once he had reached the belay, hilarious! Matt went on to second some people up both pitches of Great slab but I didn't for some reason!

Followed Dad and he seemed to enjoy it, quite a nice climb but as expected from a diff, one too many ledges to stand on!
