Bit of a one-move wonder; the rest of the climbing relatively dull.

After failing to lead it myself. Abandoned a No9 DMM wire, free to anyone who can get it out, it's about 4 years old but has been well treated. Would have taken the time to fiddle it out, but an approaching thunderstorm was making us a bit nervous about being on top of the pinnacle when lightning struck!
