Very bold for the leader to move out onto the nose. We did a mix of routes, with P3 of diagonal and P4 a mix between Western Rib and Sunset Edge

I made several regrettable decisions on this. The first was to lead the first 3 pitches in one. It was great fun but there was substantial drag, I wouldn't recommend it... The next was to put no gear on the traverses to reduce how much drag there'd be. Lastly by making the pitch so long and draggy I couldn't hear or feel that I wasn't taking in enough rope for Andrew while he was seconding. All this meant that he took a loooooong fall and swing. Doh. Last pitch was green so did superdirect to the top.

Led p1, p3 and finished up the last pitch of Diagonal as p4 has gone back to nature. Also no sign of the peg in the description. Glad I didnt have to lead p2...

P1&3 last pitch of Diagonal rather than green groove. Bold P2 and average gear on P3. Good route

1st and 2nd pitches linked but continued up instead of traversing to nose belay.

Nice to climb my anti-style. Some questing was had on the very green top pitch.
