When I got there Lord was wet, there was a big wet streak running down it...and it was a case of waiting for it to dry out, hoping it would dry out in time to do the route...I left it as long as I could and when I set out I wasn't sure whether it was in sufficiently good condition.

Leo Houlding Lead | repeat 1998

An ascent by headtorch.

Having seconded Tim Emmett up Right Wall Leo felt he needed to up the ante. Unfortunately his headtorch died half way through the crux sequence, forcing him to down climb to a rest where he could pull up a friend's torch before completing the route.
