Crazy climb, great traverse moves that were dry and well protected, but crap feet. Once round the corner into the groove, got my hands in a birds nest and a load of mud and eventually fall off on to gear on roof, which held, but quite a big fall. Cleaned the mud and got ground up next go. Would be worth taking cord to ab off stance, as second pitch was dreadful, including loose rock, grassy carpet and even a crawl through rose brushes and thickets! What an adventure
