Awesome, real world solid E3. Led 3+4 as one.
Liam Ingram - AltLd O/S - 21/Jun/14 with Jamie Sparkes

Harry Holmes - AltLd O/S - 21/Jun/14 with Clemmie Mitchell

We ran the first two pitches together (the obvious crux is in the second pitch) and lead the second two pitches together as well, since the individual pitches were short enough to allow this. I seconded the first two pitches and lead the second two.

Glad to get this done after I accidentally wandered onto it last year trying to find Sula! Did in 2 long pitches. Crux is tricky to read - I went up to the apex of the overlap and pulled over directly. The slab above the crux is bold and not a cakewalk either!

Thought we were on Sula, Hard crux section then I think I went left into Sula as the sun had set.
