I led the VS pitch, a fair few loose hold, climbing wasn't too bad though.

Led the first Pitch (which is the S) part of the route. Started to lead the second pitch but was struggling with placing any gear above the height of my first piece - did get some out to the right (a bit off route) and then decided not to continue and we swapped leads. As it turns out you just need to push on up a little. Watch out for the loose triangle shaped block near the dirty top out.

A great warm up for the day, the top half has a nice little layback in it which makes for satisfying climbing.

Led as a single pitch, which created a bit bit of drag off the tree.

Bit scrappy really, possibly just about deserves one star, but not in the same class as Fibre or Sinew elsewhere on the LH crag. Led p2 (done this bit previously as part of Pinnacle Route).
