Abbed off after first pitch when it started hailing, and the rope got stuck. Not the most best day.

Excellent climbing, particularly going through the overhangs around half-way. Route finding not always obvious, as some old pegs lead up cul de sacs. Had to do some necky down climbing. Generally, the rule sems to be: if in doubt, stay right. Frantic run to make last 'phrique, not wanting to repeat our previous misadventures (see 26 & 29 July!). Led Ps 1,3,4/5,7.
