Did it on a self belay last night and top-roped it clean tonight. Nothing too hard but pretty commiting. Lead it when its cooler. Hot and sweaty today.

One miss read move then had it second go. A superb sequence. Would be a very committing crux on lead, maybe 6a?

Had belayed Barrows on this last year. Got warmed up, did it and then got rained/hailed off. Brilliant route, really enjoyed it. Some quality arete thigh pinching after the crux stretch.
