Great fun, though wished I'd done it earlier-on in the session, as the layback, though fun, was demanding, particularly at the start. Followed Ed's nice variation finish up the scoopy slabby bit at the top.

getting established on the flake seemed harder than it should have been, glad others though this was hard for Vdiff

Solo'd this quickly, luckily someone pointed out to me that my sole was wet which was rather careless of me so I downclimbed, cleaned myself up and cruised up it. Really nice flowing layback moves with a bit of confidence! Maybe a little too confident, something to watch out for.

Followed Lizzie up after her lead, as said before really like this route.

Nice, there was a bit of a stuck thread stuck in the lower chockstone (presumibly placed by early leaders?) so spent a little time getting this thread right whilst my dad flaked out the rope. Then I was off, nice layback moves all the way up the (very) clean cut flake. Nearing the top found another thread (preplaced chockstone again?) and backed it up because of it wobbling. Moved out right and only way I could see of getting into the hand jamming crack was briding over to the seperate block, probably cheating. Lovely.
