We ran out fo daylight for the summit tower-did you solo it? It looks intimidating from the start of the ridge. How does it actually go? DId you rap off the top? How is the pro?

It went unroped. It really had to with a big party. It really wasn't hard - stiff 4th I'd say. There's one exposed step around a corner that Peter R rigged a handline for coming down but, other than that, nothing difficult.

I've some more photos of the climb up the tower. If you PM me your private email address (and are interested) I'll send them to you.

We also ran out of daylight when we did TT, getting back to Baby Bedwell at ~8.30 pm after nearly 14 hours. It's only 750 vertical metres to the summit from there - less than 2 Finlaysons. What takes so long??
