first route on the east buttress and what a stunner! Cool abbing down and seeing peeps on borderline next to us too.

I scrambled up to belay then Pippa led it in one. Great route, continually interesting. Bit damp in places, especially crux corner and the top. Had to pull on a bit of gear in corner - feeling tired and couldn't face reclimbing after comping off (especially after yesterday).

Superb, climbed in one big pitch. Climbed in the sun in t-shirt, went for a paddle in Wastwater after to cool off. Glorious day : )

Kev led main pitch, I led top pitch. After 4 dry days, top of main pitch was still wet in places and hence I had to hang on rope at one point to get gear out. Top pitch was wet in crack but dry on edges and perfectly climbable and more fun than it looked!

I led the old pitch 2 to the belay at the base of the v chimney, via the detour diagonally right followed by the hard traverse back left to the small stance. Will led up the v groove to the crux, but the weather broke. Arranging the abseil from the small stance was, shall we say, interesting!
