Lead P2. After a bit of deliberation above the good cam on diagonal, managed to get to the crack with minimal swearing. A good exercise in footwork. Most definitely 5b, especially the last pitch - glad I didn't lead that!

Immaculate! Led all pitches with P2 being the stand out. Bit pokey going left into the thick of things, couldn't find the runner on Diagonal (I put a cam under Diagonal's roof) but did fiddle in some micro wires in the seams. Steady enough once you go for it. Just delightful climbing even if I wasn't necessarily thinking that at the time!

Led P1 cleanly. Seconded P2 - nice pitch. Tried P3 but had to lower off from under roof. Patrick tired, and couldn't do P3, and so I led the Direct route last pitch, VS 5b, though crux (the bottom) crack all wet, so as the CC guide suggested, used Patrick's shoulder once I was up bridging, as there was no purchase on the slime, and no more bridging to be had without some hand purchase. You need bigs cams up here, and placing anything smaller is hard! Top was wet as well. Lowered Patric down to retrieve gear on other P3 pitch, and hauled him back up! :-)

Excellent route, nice and varied - pitch 2 is brilliant, delicate fun and pitch 3 a fitting finale up steep cracks. Pitch 1 of Diagonal makes it a bit more sustained.
