Still well scary but not as wet. Once committed to the roof its not too bad! Used a couple of cams, nuts and threads for the first pitch and a few nuts and a hook used on the roof. Good effort from Matt as it was his first (and probably last) aid route!

Our first attempt at Aiding! It was raining heavily Under the roof, soaked to the skin. Hopefully will be back soon. First pitch only.

An amazing aid adventure in the UK, well worth doing. Surprising how few ascents this gets. Climbed entirely in standard aid style (no cheat stick). Several clean aid moves and hooks required, lots of fixed gear through the roof. Grade is about C2F in its current state. Icicles and freezing temps added to the fun.

Not sure what constitutes an on sight in aid climbing, but I didn't take any falls. Used a clip stick all over the second pitch and occasionally on the first. Don't see any other way of doing it, without getting a hammer out. Uncomfortable and adventurous, excellent for exhibitionists.
