What a mess. Dave started leading up the first pitch, getting past the slabs quite happily, then got himself into an awkward position in the crack above. After a bit of squeezing, his back slipped off the wall, causing him to fall headfirst about 8m. How he came off with just a hole in his knee and pretty looking graze is a minor miracle. After sorting that mess out, I grabbed Luke and took the lead on the first pitch, getting to the same spot, and gallantly chickened out. I reluctantly down climbed the 4c slabs, taking out gear as I went. We made it back to the abseil only just avoiding wet feet, and scrambled back up. Beers were needed. I'll be back.

Tom lead the first pitch, the slabby bit being a bit cheeky. He, of all people, then misread the top big crack and despite being reminded it was only VS doggedly refused to let it beat him and battled up body jamming himself in to quite a lather. I found the holds and veritably walzed up the outside. Once I'd stopped laughing a sweat sodden Beockx belayed me along the suprisingly amenable but non the less thrilling traverse. Peachy.

Michelle took in seconding the slab to the right and found it to be easier (4b) and well protected. Doh!

Excellent route. 2nd half of p1 was the hard part for me - guidebook photo is a guy elegantly bridging up the corner, while I dived in to the chimney and proceeded to thrash and thrutch my way up like someone having an epileptc fit in a straight jacket. Must work on bridging.
P2 is good fun. Committing move to get started then easy climbing to the end of the traverse before a dramatic move round the corner on good holds. Brought Kylie across to a hanging belay where I could see her do the traverse then lead the much easier ground to the top in one pitch.

Got a bit wet at the start thanks to a bit of swell but this added to the committed feeling! I found the first pitch harder and more technical than the second. The high traverse using jams in the break felt about 4b not 5a! Would be much bolder and harder staying low on the traverse I guess. Not that it matters as the climbing and situation were excellent. Intimidating positions and clean balanced moves with good gear - what more can you ask?
