Done in the afternoon of the third day of the 'Brenin' course. Didn't managed to climb it cleanly - got to the top of the crack on the penultimate pitch and ran out of holds (my claim is that my partners were standing on all the good ones!). Lee stuck a QD through a nut for me to pull on - my first bit of aid climbing! Another great route.
