First day leading Trad again after fall. We went in to do Tatra, found it had fallen into the sea. Started up it anyway then backed off sandy, crumbling first pitch of unknown grade (at time, had no book). Head wasn't up for that. Half climbed, half prussiced back up ab line to ledge. Traversed out right to gain flakes of Ashes & Diamonds. French freed final move to jugs on nut placement in thin crack. Menna followed, stella effort with torn hands from prussic, then lowered me off to work out move. A day that will remain in my head for a while ;-).

Bottom half only, then traversed into the corner to join Directors Groove at its crux. Mike took a fall when a hold crumbled in his hand. I managed to duck in time.
