Linked with top pitch of dream. Brilliant

with George Ullrich
ebf 28/Aug Lead O/S

Too windy for Quart Icicle, we felt, so did this instead & very glad we did. As good as Dream and a little harder. Done in 2 pitches from the ledge. P2 is great and P3 is brilliant. No creaking holds as far as I could tell (I led P3), but the top out to the Wen belay is horrific, quite spoils it, to be honest. Could see this deserving low E1, just about.
