Really fun set of pitches. Thought the 2nd could be a bit scary for a 5.9 leader -- was a bit dirty and a tad run-out. !st and 3rd are the gems, 1st for movement, 3rd for exposure.

Has anyone ever considered doing P1-3 as one long pitch, leading with a 70m and having the 2nd tag another or just do the multiple raps? Would a 70m and runners do it ya think?

Belays weren't great. Would recommend linking the second two pitches, or skipping them.
