Paul took a tumble first, the flake starts great, the ledges are slightly leaning and the holds were difficult to find, after tiring out I too fell and climbed as second

So easy as a second, there is a finger hold behind the tuft of grass that made everything possible.

Got very pumped near the top of the first crack so moved sideways onto the large ledge to rest. Restarted at the same position but probably should have downclimbed to claim onsight!

Climbing partner managed to come off while leading near the top onto a cam however didn't lead to a very exciting first fall since it was only over the course of a couple of feet...

May have slipped a bit... first lead fall... and survived! Shameful really!

Me and Mike made a quick solo of this, remembered it being much harder before just because it was knackering leading it.

Another lovely short jamming crack, I hung around placing gear at the top of the first crack so downclimbed to the floor for a rest, went up again and finished it off, odd semi-retreating from a Severe even if it was just for a rest! Would have been miles easier to solo but it was starting to get wet and didn't fancy falling off from the top crack!
