Blue skies vexingly turned into rain about a mile out from Culdaff on Saturday. Undeterred PJ and I set up a top rope and slipped and slid our way up Orange Blossom and Grecian Gift between the showers.
Finished off the drying afternoon with a lead of Bird Nests Bulge, a wee gem of a Severe next to Bluebelle that I never knew existed. Hard for the grade and pumpy and awkward in the middle. PJ got shouted at as she took in too quickly when I missed a clip and I'm not usually that panicked on a Severe!
Good end of season fun.

You forgot to mention the young couple surfing nearby.

You didn't know it existed, I thought we'd done it together? Ho hum, such is life. Still, agree it's a very worthwhile line; it used to be a regular solo when there was no-one else around.

It's possible we did but that 1 ascent is lurking in the depths of my cloudy memory. Having climbed every other sub-HVS route on that wall 47 times that 1 route is lost in the bustle.
