Note - Pitch 3 has a really dodgy large loose block which has been reported by several log entries. If it were to come out it could do serious damage on the Greta / Zelda stance or below. It is easily avoidable if you are aware.

So much for a chilled HS multi-pitch to end the day. P1 was OK but more run out than expected. P2 is fine. P3 is a run out death trap for the grade - that loose stack of blocks needs to go! Never found the hidden peg so no idea if it's gone or we simply went off route. VS 4b?

PS P1 + P2, AB P3. Pitch one is interesting... no gear for quite a while. Massive loose block on P3, it could do with being safely taken down as it is direcly above the belay stance for Greta and Zelda. Couldn't find the 'hidden peg' on P3, off route maybe?

Bold and Dangerous. On first pitch (10 meters up with no runners) entire ledge I was standing on collapsed away. Just about managed to cling on. Terrifying. A few minutes later, a second ledge in the corner cracked and detached from the wall but thankful didnt break off (will do shortly). Extremely friable rock. Not to mention the huge death block wobbling directly over the 2nd belay. The route had several 10 meter run outs over manky pegs. Fully worth VS. I'd pity the HS leader who found themselves on this. A serious route.

Dropped a set of nuts on Hannah when placing my first piece on the second pitch after they magicly became detached, impressively she caught them and I went back down and got them. I also got very lost on the second pitch but eventually managed to find the shared belay point. Whilst at the belay stance a Chinook flew below us down the valley.
