Previously seconded, nice to get back and lead this. Good gear, crux at the top is good fun.

First E1 (albeit on second)! Awkwardly thrutched up the chimney then laybacked the crux.

Very nice bridging up the corner followed by a desperate grovelly lichenous finish! Definitely worth doing but a bit of a fight!

Looked a bit intimidating and dirty, but was ok, good bridging and most restful, but strenuous topping out

First E1 lead. Climbed cleanly to just below the crux and after placing an extra nut and a bit of encouragement managed to cleanly top out. Good route, with two interesting buldges and nice finishing move!

Really nice route. I got a blue CAMP air cam stuck in the crack under the roof so if anyone can wizard it out that would be rewarded with beer!

Euan had just led earlier so I'd a pretty decent idea of what to do.

Great onsite with a bit of everything; bridging, a run-out traverse and a strong layback off a flake. Brilliant route!

Consolation lead following a fall from Northumberland Wall. Perhaps in hindsight I should have lead this first to warm up better. Anyway, this one went very steady, gets tough last few moves but nowt too taxing
