Simon led p1,2 of Pandora in a single long pitch, (soloed P1 as its trivial, P2 is not!) I led P3 which is excellent with good lakes and gear. Bloody hot!
lithos - AltLd - 22/Apr/14 with carmen, Simon C

Rob's lead. A brilliant pitch, though more like 15/20m than the 60m given in the guide. Approached via Pandora - the direct approach looked awful, no idea why this option was added to the selected guide (Highland Outcrops doesn't mention it).
