Excellent climb, 5+/6a ground. Counted 14 pitches, you could have linked some with halfs. Chimney pitch was excellent.

A long climb on excellant granite. Quite hard but with good bolts! A good lead by Rach on the crux pitch. Did well to keep up with Mark and Catherine and Steve and Mark. Met Liz and Dave on the summit. Abseil decent in two groups of four. Took longer than the accent due to stuck ropes!

Buff Powell and Rob Sneyd climbing behind us. Lovely climbing on the route. Electrical storm hit us on the abseil descent of hte south ridge. Indirectly zapped by discharge running down the mountain. Rain so heavy that visibility was down to a few tens of metres and rocks being swept down the faces.
