<< Great Peter

[Pulpit Groove, 2 kb]28m. A devious expedition. Climb either of the short cracks (crux whichever one you choose) to gain the base of the ramp and follow this to a sitting stance on the Pulpit. Stride across the gap and follow the exposed ramp to a large ledge and tree belay. Finish out to the right for the best effect. © ROCKFAX
No tree belay at end of pitch 2 now. Probably best to continue to top and arrange long belay from the new stake.

The most fun I've ever had in the company of another man :) The technical bit is at the start up the crack, slope and onto the pulpit to the second belay. I took the second pitch across the gap and up the ramp. No real technical difficulty but the traverse of the ramp is sufficiently unnerving to make the route memorable. Built a second anchor on the big platform above just for rope skills. Despite what recent guidebooks say, there is now no tree anchor, only a rotten stump. Do not use!

Started as for Three Tree Climb. The step across the void and the sloping ledge felt a bit wild for a V Diff. The addition of rain and an angry bird nearby didn't help my head state, but an enjoyable romp for a V Diff leader I should imagine. Quite sandy throughout, which detracts from the star rating.

Felt like an expedition thanks to the necessary belay at halfway point, due to rope drag becoming excessive. I led both pitches, after a cumbersome handover of belay duties at the stance. Would have been better to have set the belay on the ledge before stepping across the corner, rather than afterwards.

I led the first pitch, then swung leads to Matt, then one more small lead/roped solo over the top and a body belay to bring Matt up the scramble. First pitch is very nice, steep crack for a VDiff, awkward step out left, a insecure walk up a easy angled slab, and a thug over up onto the pulpit! Difficult for your average VDiff! Set up a solid belay, brought Matt up, very carefully flaking the ropes over the belay rope (to organise). Matt carried on, only for me to find that even after my hard work, I still managed to drop half the rope down the back of the pulpit. Pulled it all back up into a mess on the pulpit and carried on feeding out rope with difficulty. Deffonately need some practice with organising the rope on small stances, as this is my first ever real multipitch. The step out right feels really quite out there, then we were unsure where to go. Matt led up the left corner immediately to the left after the stepup. This felt very difficult for a VDiff, a 4a/4b move! and then a tricky mantle over the top. Ohwell, much fun and rock was beginning to warm up! Could hear another couple grunting their way up Three Tree Climb next to us, so that was next on the agenda!
