Led all 3 pitches in brilliant sunshine, no clouds. perfect day. scary on P1 going under the roofs! funny moment at P2 belay when old matey and his "missy" came up from Brute and across, noticing I'd built a nut belay rather than use the pegs: "oh, d'you not trust the pegs then?" me: "no, not really, do you?" "well yeah, I put them here!" awkward...

Have done the P1 and a bit half a year ago. This time Jo lead that part and P4, I lead P2+3 in one go. In the P3 part, I went off route right at the start, negotiating the roof directly and made a scary traverse... P3 and P4 are dirty and vegetated, and not worth doing, I found.
