Got to the top of the 5th pitch and the belay was a single part pulled rivet. I tried to lead on but about 12ft short of a crack that would eat gear the holds dried up and the climbing started to get desperate. Not wishing to kill us I managed to reverse down for a pow wow. Abbing off seamed to be the best choice but the rivet was pant's! We set the ropes up and I went first. As I started Andy unclipped from the belay, I asked him what he was doing and he said if it ripped he did not want to go with me! We laughed about it at the bottom and I told him I would have hated being up there on small holds with no belay knowing my partner was dead, Good job we were a couple of lightweights!

Just climbed the first 5 pitches, which is the usual way to take in the best bits. First-pitch crux is a nasty 25 - 30ft up with one bolt for protection - and they used a duff batch of bolts on this route. Scary.
