Dirty slightly damp due to light showers. First proper outdoor single pitch. Very nervous and used the corner ledges to make things easier. No gear to clean, had a go at extracting a stuck nut from the cave though.

Found this one quite challenging in places, although it looked straight forward enough, isnt it always the way though. top out was a bit muddy and quite a long belay required to support second.
