Epic in every sense of the word. Came in to P1 from the right to avoid wet crack, turned into absolute gripper. Took 3 hours onsighting crux pitch, spicy run outs and loose rock, traverse left above the short crack was desperate, don't know if I went too low. Took ages arranging marginal gear behind the ledge before moving up. Marianne accidentally ripped half the ledge off the wall on the second. Abb'd off instead of doing top pitch to avoid darkness and death scramble descent. Totally sandbagged by E4 in guide, definite E5 for the run outs and dodgy rock. Brilliant route though. Got back down to find a raven had eaten all our food and Marianne's shoelaces. Surfed back down the scree slope in the pouring rain, back at car around midnight.
Immense. Almost got defeated by the wet first pitch. I led 2 and 3

The only time John saw me scared when seconding! This was something like the fifth ascent. Did Edgehog in Glen Nevis the same day!
