Got a bit mauled on this route, what with trapping some skin between the quickdraw and rope plus a couple of really awkward falls. But I think I got some of the hard moves and they were good. Would come back to this.

Spitting rain, got up before it really affected the climbing. Another pleasant 6 at Dinbren.
