4.5 hours to do the route. Led pitches 1, 2, 3 and 4. Hol led pitch 5. Was intending to do 'Blown Away' but it was a bit windy so thought better of it.

Another beauty. Loved the contrast between the thrutchy overhanging jams on P2 and the elegant splitter on P3. Two full sets of ordinary cams plus a 5 and 6 certainly adds a bit of gravity though!

Outstanding finger-jamming pitch after the roof and off-width made it all well worth waiting in line for. Awesome. ONE star?!!!
