Put a runner in by the arete (spotted from the floor) but it still felt bloody hard and bold, particularly in the heat.

Put some gear in (on route) from the ground / gully next to reduce ground fall impact.

Flashed the E3 up to the break but then bottled it and finished up the E2. About three pads. Really grateful to the guys who had just cleaned it up and let me have a go over their pads :)

Thin smeary moves, but good gear (which I tested!) in the left arete.
