Not the longest climb I have done but by far the best! So many types of positions, layback, jamming, crimps etc.

In one big pitch. Fantastic.
HIGHTOWER - Lead O/S - 16/Oct/09 with Patch

In two pitches. On P2 I had to downclimb and retrieve my only #4 camalot after using it too early, doh! After filling a key handhold with an alien I couldn't bridge up, so I ignored the RH crack and just jammed up the L one.
Siderunner - Lead O/S - 09/Oct/09 with Kirsten

Brilliant - well worth the supertopo accolade of the best 5.8 hand crack in the valley!

Did it in one run-out with a 60m rope, which made it the best single-pitch VS I can think of.
