Tricky first pitch (though we were probably not on it...) with little gear but straight forward from there. Wet when we did it so some interesting slime...

Led all pitches. First 3 in approach shoes before switching to stickies after the 10 m traverse pitch. Adam's first multi-pitch. P1 a bit damp so had to take a line slightly further right at a similar grade. Highly recommended mountain adventure.

Guided Graeme & Jason up this classic, during the heatwave. Lovely mellow climb and great to lead my friends up it 'guide' style which went well apart from a bit of 'faffing' at the belays.

It started drizzling half way up. Interesting 101m solo...Don't tell my missus or insurers!.. a big hold came off in my hand at about 50m too. Scary. Good buzz topping out, even if it was raining hard by then.

I think this was the route we must have done, but the mist was so thick we'll never know for sure!

A very wet ascent in the pouring rain.
