Great lead by Mike. Pretty hard to onsight but okay to second as you have the beta. Not sure about leading it.

First E1 Lead!!!!!! Climbing up to the roof is nice to get your focus before the roof, really good gear in the crack that splits the roof. I really found the pull over strenous, bit of nervous tension aswell me thinks not wanting give up the onsight. Ace route

Attempted onsight in the morning, doubt I would have managed even if the route was dry but the fact that it was dripping wet is my excuse for failure and I'm sticking to it. Only just managed later on in the day in much better conditions.
