13 The Lute

Did the full route for the first time in prob 30+ years. Avoided the scrubby crack of pitch 2 by climbing the corner just to its left. A bit of loose rock just below the roof at the start of the corner. Good route that's protected and climbs well. Traversing off to the rap station at top of pitch 1 is a bit of a cop out.

Approached via 60m abseil from top of 'Dunes', left of and above the finish of 'Lawrence' to great spot next to the huge chockstone. Good adventure. 2 pitches of 25m, first good, especially corner on arete, second not so good rock but then Norm missed the traverse off right and finished up steep black groove to left.

Did as one pitch with double ropes. Drag manageable but could have done with at least 4 more slings to extend runners (had 6) Didn't clip rap anchor bolts as out of line. Should have checked that Nod's ropes were actually 60m - turned out they were 50m and left me standing on top just out of reach of the belay bollard Lot of wear and tear on the track down past Starless - maybe a rap anchor is called for.

Descent via the super highway. With 2x60m ropes would be best to do first 30m rap on one rope and carry the other, then do a 60m rap to ground. Otherwise too much rope to tangle and pull through on first rap.

12 Sisyphus

Ancient climb that I have never done. Not too bad, chimney on Orpheus very exciting, probably a bit harder than 9, a #2 (yellow) camalot high up deep in the crack is pretty useful. Shady belays on a hot day. Finished up Orpheus because it was in the shade. OK but clambering over huge detached blocks at the top wasn't nice. Better to traverse off at Bard terrace level.
