Lawrie Brand - Solo rpt - 14/Sep/11

Done as intro to grade 3 with noticeable grade 3 edging on slabs right to Ashton's 'upper of two breaks' and blank kerb-like arete soon after his 'when practical regain the left-hand rib' (overcome by pull on narrow edge with foot on flake left high on gully sidewall). Followed Ashton's description throughout rather than the (mainly avoiding) path.
