I can't believe anyone went any other way than past the tower.
I reckon it would have been quicker that way to #5 also, if only I'd executed it correctly.
I can't believe it either! However, Tim went low also and Nick L went left out of the control - which was my plan until I saw the cliffs and the stony ground above and bailed out. I think I had a degree of oxygen debt at this point. I had forgotten I'd found a nice path from near that point to the wall on the way to #5 - using the wall to #5 made that control pretty easy.
