Lead the first pitch - which I may have been slightly off route as it felt like 5a with zero gear. Mike backed off p2 as it was "rather loose". Abbed off.

Our first main wall climb. Half way up the loose blocks I decided I had gone far enough and belayed from a doubtful piton next to a Syringopora coral. Lucky we survived!
