Tremendous route if you like this sort of thing. Adventurous climbing that gets you into some tremendous positions, but it does have some disposable holds. Pitch 1 is ok, pitch 2 feels a bit committing, tough 5b section, peg is only useful as a way marker. Pitch 3 climbs through amazing but loose territory, 5a/b but a bit scary, (good lead by Andy). Pitch 4 is quite sustained and 5a, and pitch 5 is the easiest of them all because it has good gear, good solid holds, and no route finding issues.

Did 1st, 3rd and 5th pitches. I would say the two 4c pitches were both 5a and they felt as intimidating as the 5b pitches. Brilliant outing.
