Quite scary today due to very strong winds, and another climb where it was hard to place any gear. Some really good climbing though, especially first pitch.

Very Easy for a VDiff, more like a Grade 2 scramble? Brilliant climbing though. Done moving together, changing leads as gear ran out. Need to improve our ropework before doing this on anything harder though! Lovely straightforward climbing
