Lead P2. P1 is fantastic!

In one pitch, very good. 5a off-width at the top is some thrutch.

I led the P2 off width. Actually I went onto the rope on P1 after trying to reverse back down from the crux. Got it by doing a delicate teeter from the left hand side. The hand traverse followed by layback was not the crux for us, it was the next move into the groove.

Got the surprise offwidth pitch, good preparation for what was to come the next day.

Speed climbing route #2. The crux felt slow and unnerving (small wires and cams handy). Must trim the fluffy ends of that rope! Grey cam handy for chimney

Led P1. P2 was awesome. Incorporated face climbing, crack climbing, jamming. Truely varied and fantastic - this is why we keep on coming back to Fair Head.

Vince led P1 - super hard and sustained. Difficult moves as you go right into the 'pod'. I laid back and got a cool knee bar. I led P2 which was a horrible off width which gradually became a squeeze chimney. I tried to layback it and fell off just below the top onto Vince on the belay. Pretty sobering as it's only 5a!
