Thanks for all the kind words gents - It was a pleasure puting the report together!

Flagged, well, sort of. Rather than attaching to the haul line along the long edge 'in line' above the haul bag, Phil lined both ledges up together (like stacking a deck of cards) and dangled them coathanger style from below the bag. It was an 85 meter haul (my estimate) from below the roof to the ledge at the beginning of the last pitch and they didn't seem to cop any bumps or scrapes in the process. We were chuffed.

Sorry Nick, 'twas blue. And in a cruel turn of fate, I actually dropped it later on the climb. It landed further down the hill from the P1 belay, but before the vegetation becomes significant. I'd actually love to spend a day on Comet collecting dropped gear. On my rap down to the base of the climb I spied nuts all over the place - but I had places to be so didn't deviate to collect!
