Really good climb. Scariest part was the large loose boulder which makes up part of the right hand arÍte moving about an inch as I pulled on it. Thought it would land squarely on Jenny belaying below. Probably made the route hard for myself than I needed by trying to climb all the way to the roof, rather than stepping right a metre lower.

I seem to remember one of us backed off due to loose blocks and an epic in the dark ensued, however, I cannot remember if it was me or him!

COLD, so COLD and very very windy. I couldn't throw the rope back down for the third man, it kept blowing back. ended up lowering the "second" so that the third climber could come up.
