Was going to go up to Brian's but he phoned to say it was raining - then called again at lunchtime to say it had cleared up, so I headed up. Started drizzling as we got to the car park, then rained quite heavily on and off for the best part of half an hour while we hid in the tunnel. Amazingly most routes stayed dry. The easier routes were wet or had people on them so had to warm up on this one. Made it up first go but bypassed the crux by using the flake to the left for a few moves. Got on it again to straighten out the line and didn't quite make it through the crux. Got it third go though.
