Short but stiff! End traverse was exciting!

Mostly dry, dogged from the traverse onwards and couldn't pass the final block. Very poor effort but nice to get out none the less.

Thirded for gear, but varied finish going over top of last block

First gritstone lead. Much better than I expected. Then began to rain, and was as if the crags had suddenly been smeared with mud. Definitely be back.
