Dave lead hard pitch. I had to weight one of the cams to lean back and remove the big cam under the roof that I was too boxed to remove when passing it. Awesome. Hard through roof although safe (but i wasnt on the sharp end) and the chimney rest is very good. Bit soapy but perhaps in as good nick as it can be. Pitch 3/is sustained and peg is rotted away but thread can be found. Higher up route turns to some sort of crumbly cheese... With no guide on us Dave forced a direct exit up the main corner line... Does E5 4c exist... Maybe! But what a line. Kerching!

A proper sketch adventure. Hard! Greased out the slippy crux utterly exhausted. Dodgy nut caught a potentially nasty fall. Pulled the ropes and scraped through second go. On the same day as Darkinbad - mega!

was so so greasy, finally sat on a cam at the roof as holds where so wet. other than that whole thing was free and went well. lead both the crux pitches. 95% sure wouldnt have rested if dry, but bet it rarely is. amazing adventure.

Dispatched with manflu, a big sea and damp holds on the crux. Like Jules says - it was emotional but utterly brilliant!

Must have been a very early ascent. Got to the top and found that Nipper had no belay and had untied from the rope!
