Only led 4th (easy) pitch. Tried to lead 3rd, made the leap but failed to hold the jug and went flying upside-down down the slab, Cut hand and bruised arse but not too serious. Luckily Nic fared better! Great route but the old rusty bolts could do with replacing

Seconded P1 clean. Tried P2 and P3 on lead but backed off then took a hang on both on second. Didn't have a go at the jump as the ropes ran over an sharp edge, just dogged off the bolt with a long sling. Led top pitch in mega winds and hence no chalk. Epic adventure, some really hrd moves, and bar the ledge shuffling very sustained. pitches E5, E6, 6c (english),E4/5. Bolts weren't inspiring.

Led pitch 1, 2 & 3. Took 1 lob on first and second pitch and led them from hands off footrests. Pitch 3 took a few swings, before getting the move. Absolutely mega! Love jumping moves, but even that jump on pitch 3 was scary, ended up doing it by falling a hand onto the arete of the groove and getting a full on quarryman groove move going. Amazing adventure. Scary rusty bolts.
