βeta: I took the first 3 pitches and Dave Percy took the rest. That second pitch is ust awesome. sustained but never desperate. lots of good hand holds and gear. The top 5a pitch looks impossible from the belay but when ou get on it, there's lots of holds and good pro too. 1 tricky move around to the slab for the belay. The top pitch has some dodgy rock on it but is a worthwhile pitch with some 3d climbing. Amazing day.
