I led the easy P1; Alex P2. A bit of a runout there! Nice juggy climbing through the roof.

Led crux second pitch. Wasn't expecting the runout to the roof. Put the fear of god into me.

Bold, delicate face climbing contrasted with a safe and thuggish finish.

Alt leads, because I lead the bold part and couldn't do the steep bit, so swapped with Rozzy who finished it off.

A scary ascent. Upon getting to the belay it began to drizzle incredibly lightly. Began climbing quickly to get out of there soon. The juggy 5a wall started to get wetter as the rain increased. After getting a stack of reasonable RPs in I downclimbed but as I did a hand slipped off a wet hold. 3 RPs held me, the shit one fell out. It then stopped raining and I got on with it, albeit quite gripped. The moves through the roof are burly and hard for 5b. Tough climbing, leave an ab rope in place to aid the ascent of the horrendous loose slope. Was glad for colin lowering a loop of the ab rope down to us. Much better to ab into than walk across from around the indy 500. Super route.

Good choice for greasy conditions, with positive holds on edges and flakes. Led P1. Gave myself black eye extricating gear above roof!

Great route. Nik got the plum pitch. WARNING: Our abseil rope was badly cut here and I believe there is danger that some of the cemented in blocks on the mud slope could be pulled off. Take care!
