did pitches 5-9 I led 6 and 9, very glad I didn't lead 8, with the bold moves around the big block. Some very nice climbing, looking forward to doing the rest sometime.

Long, loose, lovely, vegetated, slimy and long. Did the whole thing. Pitches 1-14 some joined together a bit, some slight detours where we went too high or low. Only took 7 hours, finished just at last light.

Pitch 1 was wet and slippery so started with pitch 2. I led pitches 2 and 3 as one long pitch, then pitch 4. C led 5, I led 6, C led 7. I then led a variation of pitch 8, ie I went off route, ended up traversing about 4m too high, reversing the final traverse of Wings - turned out to be a good pitch, would make a nice alternative finish to Birdland Direct. Then we ran out of time, and finished up Wings. The first 4 guidebook pitches are pretty rubbish, next time we'll start up Moanin' (where the route originally started).
