led second pitch, very windy

pretty bold when you step out onto the left wall after the chimney nearly popped off on the awkward move up then to another awkward topout for the first belay
I found this scary.
More like hvs 5a with sparse gear. Would be tempted by bran flake over this! Oh and the wall is steeper than it looks.
Led first pitch. Didn't like final blank wall at top of P1, so moved right and continued up narrowing chimney, which is more in keeping with the rest of the first pitch. Moving out of the chimney is bold, but necessary if you need to continue up! Abseiled off top of P1, as ran out of time.
bold, glad I didnt lead this bad boy
I led P1 Chimney & Slab. fairly bold and a pretty hard move at the top. Jim P2 which was better protected - mostly!
I led pitch 1

led second pitch. The last and second last moves on this are pretty tough and there is not a huge amount of comfort to be sought in the gear.
I led P1 and its not VS 4C, more like HVS 5a and hard. My partner had climbed the route before and agrees that P1 is hard and bold. Nice though :)

First pitch at top was bold,gear low down,small hold and a 1 finger pocket :(
Climbed wall right of gully between Thread and Wind, then followed pitch 2 of Uhuru. (In one pitch)

Dave Durkan! You must have spent the previous week on Scottish VS before grading this.
