Led pitch 1. Wet.
Neil Henson - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/15 with Mark Collins

First lead for a couple of years. Although technically pretty easy found it really hard psychologically I think due to the shape of the canyon and the fact that any falls from above gear would have meant smashing into all sorts of stuff before the great caught. Found second half, once out of the canyon much simpler / easier. Matt soloed up to help me setup the belay for Ben.
