Huddled onto the ledge under the roof to get some gear in and ended up all stuffed in there facing the wrong way. Only way out was to cut loose on the big jug. Got a cheer from the crowds.

alex insisted i had to go left from the jug. after 3 attempts to go left I rested on the rope. Then decided to try right & found the hidden jug straight away. there must be a moral in there somewhere.

Hard move even for the not short. Also ended up facing outwards under the roof, silly!

Backed off from the crux pumped on lead, then seconded it cleanly. Neil also found it hard and had to rest on lead. Very good route. Went straight through remains of peregrine nest - lots of little bones all over the place.

Feeling very lethargic, pulled over the lip the first time and decided I couldn’t be bothered, so I traversed over to Jeffcoat's Chimney to retret, then decided I did want to do it so went back. Committed to move over lip and fell off, which gave me the motivation I need to get on with it.
