Abed to the bottom, soloed the bottom pitch- pulling the rope into the ledge for jas. Led the crux pitch. Decided it was going to kill jas if he seconded me as there was sod-all gear and it's traversey. Down-climbed back down to the belay. Jas abed off with the rope going through the belay. I pulled it back out and jumped off, making a brilliant swing into the trees!

I lead the easy VSish pitch and then Luke made a valiant, but unsuccessful effort on freeing the crux pitch. He got quite far, until his crimp snapped.

Replaced Abseil Tat in the cave. Backed of the traverse, abseiled off, P1 worth it at VS 4c**.
