End of day solo while waiting for the others to finish up. Really quite enjoyable.

Somehow my second time leading this my rope work was even worse. Wasn't having the best of days. Rope drag was so bad I was contemplating untying and soloing the second section. Not my proudest lead.

Really loved this! Soft for the grade, but super fun.

Rhys.Roberts 28/Sep/17 Lead O/S

a nice fun lead, be sure to manage your ropes carefully to avoid the obvious rope drag.

I led to the niche after the traverse, nearly missed the traverse and set off up the E3!

Great exposure, always a pleasure to come around an arête with air beneath your feet. Pretty steady climbing, nothing particularly technical. Constellation of route finding, rope work, and commitment to the hand traverse make this VS. Jugs on the hand traverse are confidence inspiring and there are plenty of cam placements in that horizontal break, you can't see the "niche" from the ground, but is obvious once you come around the arête and pull up.

Brilliant route. Enjoyed every move, even if I dropped my camera from 1/3 of the way up. Amazingly, the camera stopped at the bottom of the crag and is still working!

Didn't traverse soon enough, resulting in gear high and right, resulting in mega rope drag, resulting in doing the moves at the top with a metre of slack held in my teeth. V. unprofessional.

Broke this into two pitches. Led the crux and built a belay at the corner.

With Kirsten, Rosa and Hermione. Did it in 2 pitches so there was enough rope for 3 seconds to join me on the cozy belay ledge

There is currently a Fulmar nesting here. I didn't spot it until I got right up next to it on the ledge. I would avoid this route for the time-being to avoid disturbing them.

Excellent route though rope drag not helped by strong winds blowing the ropes all over. Contrary to some of the comments, I thought the rock was good.

Loose at the bottom. Otherwise good. Went too high on the hand traverse. But rescued it at the cost of bad rope drag.

Great adventurous route. Bit of lose rock. Fulmars, a traverse. A lovely top corner and always great solid gear. The polish on the traverse made for the crux of the climb! Extend all gear leading to traverse to avoid rope drag . Lovely route
