With this thought in mind, I was keen to make it a good one. Pete started us off cruising the under graded Pantagruel VS 5a*. I then soloed Windbreaker E2 5b** and Pipe Spanner E1 5c*, but trailed a rope so Pete could follow (there are no runners). Meanwhile, Dan and Huw made short work of Plumb Line VS 4c***, Sodom E1 5c** and Gomorrah E1 5b**.

It was time to step things up a bit. So I abseiled down Sagittarius Flake E5 6b*** to see how wet the finishing hold actually were. Answer, Pretty wet. However, this is the driest I had seen the route, so opted to go for the flash anyway as the gear was good. I was very happy when the route was sent with little fuss. The wet holds at the top were a good size, so I could dyno to the top to avoid a wet foothold.
