Good 6a first major one lead outside, only had to sit in harness once to work out the move and no falls. threaded rope through top elephants but could not climb so hands were over the top of the route. to be tried again when no fog so rock is dry and so can be done cleanly

Climbed as a group of four, interestingly we did the end three different ways. There is a block missing at the end. I managed to precariously palm of a low mini ledge to get to the top. Lou managed to find a tiny crimp and the boys layed back the left hand side
