No idea what I climbed for the first 50-odd metres (might have been the first pitch or two of Zen; I certainly ended up on Zen's belay ledge, before doing somethng else weird and traversing onto the chimney), but I definitely finished on the chimney, which was as glorious as I remembered it, but this time with some stacked hexs' I'm very glad I didn't fall on.

Super nice slab and flake climbing to a ridiculous thrutchy crack thing. Class.
Alex McCalman - 2nd O/S - May/13 with Owen Largey

Great big bag of hilarious. Soaking wet, Bearnagh covered in snow, cold with howling wind. Classic type 2 fun day!

Soaking wet as is was a cold rainy day. Fell a couple of time spraughling up the crack. Felt harder than HS. The rope got stuck while abseiling and is still at the crag... all together awesome but an ordeal.

Hard work, 2 falls at the crack... harder than a HS I found, mainly due to the small crack and lack of features on the slab because it.

Silly Xmas fun. Tom forced by his Mum to buy new boots for the walk-in (along a good path) set the tone. Easy slabs led to a ridiculous offwidthy crack thing which, being the middle of winter, was coated in lichenous slime and was utterly ridiculous. Then ran along the tops to the other side of Commedagh and down to Newcastle: good day out.
