Avoided the rope drag by putting loads of slack in the system before going for the final moves...not the best solution, but it worked.

rope drag-arama. Bit worrying to finish when having to haul yourself up against rope drag.

A very scary traverse below the roof, got terrible rope drag, would recommend putting in a couple of runners just before going onto the traverse to make it easier to belay

A very scary route to watch JD lead this one.
