Linked with Stumpy below in one pitch. Unfortunately, think I got soles damp wandering around on grassy ledge before blithely setting off on 2nd leg of this epic enchainment. Result: foot suddenly popped off smear. Can confirm that a plummet from the crux does not weight the gear! Back up with no problem after a good wipe - but might be rather tenuous to claim I 'preserved the onsight!'

freaky in the wind but not hard, like soloing a hard vs

only new tick today I think - got shut down on most other stuff tried, mainly zippy's and then captain hook last thing. Not moving too bad on some slabby though.
