Made the start harder than it should be. Rewarded with sight of a pod of dolphins leaping around in the bay below when I got to the top. Cool.

Was meant to be following up "the digit counter falls - HVS" but the only gear and therefore rope was so far right that I was gunna take a big swing into another wall so moved left to the next route, North corner, to get up. Disappointed couldn't second HVS again.

Nicest climb of the weekend, probably due to the complete lack of scary height or exposure :)
