bit of a mashup. was looking for heatwave but ended up on p1 of storm, found common belay point but p2 of HW looked grubby vegetated and uninspiring whereas wall straight up looked, and was, lovely, somewhat gearless but really good holds so never worrying....then after old wall continued up the slabs of vampire. made quite a nice combo :-)
