Done this just before the sunset, after it had been raining all day. It was a bit damp unsurprisingly. Led P2. Fun route, exciting exposure on the final wall with the wind and swirls of mist whizzing by.

Finally came back to lead this. Think the first pitch is quite tricky. Lead 2nd pitch - absolutely amazing! Very nearly missed the hidden 'glory hold'...
