Very windy, we were getting blown off! Attempted to lead but got too tired near top and lowered off Sam M finished it. Wind made one of the moves high up very hard.

Tricky start and could then place some gear. Had to keep moving after this because it was too steep for me to hang around. Good climb! I didn't find it easier than Scorpion...
