Perfect boxing Day climb, aby lead P1 and 2 together I lead 3 and 5. Despite being curtain at the start that it was a bad idea aby topped out happy.

Lead P1&2 together and P4. P5 has no 4c moves... Started off while still in the shade and struggled with the cold until the sun came over and nicely warmed us up... P2 is tad on the bold side?

Lead Ps 2 & 4. Great line. Climbing a bit inconsistent- some easier sections. Good crux at start of P4.

Another very good route, I led P1/P3/P5, wandered off left a bit on P3. Sprained ankle on a rock walking down afterwards.

Had 2nd and 4th pitches. 2nd very good prob belayed too low. Jurgen superbly avoided the crux of 3rd pitch by splitting into 2 including a 5b left traverse. Upper crux kinda unbalanced the route and gear tricky to arrange, horrendous rope drag caused an early belay.

I led P3b,4; Ross led P1+2,3a. We belayed under the wrong tree (too far left) on pitch 3, hence splitting into 2 to get back on route. Correct stance is in the gully in the watercourse.

Missed top crux by misreading rather vague guidebook description (go up R after committing section on p3 - we didn't)

First few pitches good but scrappy top couple.

Belay directly below the crux moves to save massive rope drag on the top pitch and also to better protect the leader on the crux crack. The photo in the guide has the correct belay stance, but not the description.
