Great weather (really lucky) and a good route with the wife (over from England for a family wedding). Simple climbing but lots of loose stuff. Not really a 'climb' but a good top end scramble.
Zoomer - Lead O/S - 07/May/15 with Julia Bloomer

Weather about as bad as you can get :) Gusting wind of up to 80kph Driving rain, and very little visibility. The weather definitely made it more difficult as the rock was very slippery, and the win made communication quite difficult.

Guided climb, I was middle man on a three man rope. Absolutely horrendous conditions for this, no visibility, very strong wind and extremely wet and slippery conditions made this one a challenge, great stuff!
