Pure class. One long hands-free rest in the middle, well protected, and interesting climbing above and below the pod. Faced left as looked easier for back-and-footing, and was then not too hard to get out (though have already forgotten how - think I got as high as I could then used ledge on right). One of my favourites!

Hard! Hottest October day ever? The back and footing is strenuous especially towards the top where it becomes offensive! Fell from the top of the top 'cause I tried to escape the back footing too early (facing left) and ended up pumped on the sloping ledge without a foothold. Got it right the second time but it was still desperate. Got very annoyed trying to place last piece of gear at the top of pod, couldn't get a nut to go and had already used the required size 2 friend. Ended up pulling it from below; I was so desperate no to fall off the crux again have to do the pod again! Superb route but make sure you move chalk bag to the size and some back padding might be advisable to avoid bruising. Looking forward to getting back to clean it, maybe pick a cooler day

Had to sit on the rope at the top of the pod, to remove a horribly stuck cam, then got lowered to the bottom of the pod and redid that section cleanly. I can't honestly say I found any of the moves to really be 5b, it just felt as if every single one was hard 5a though, making it harder than any 5b I've done.

If bottom 10 feet had been at top this climb would be really desperate.I found pod easy facing left but protection not great in pod and glad I did not fall.Feet left rock just as I reached for ledge at top of pod.Gear good in crack above the pod but need to be good at jamming.I found top a cruise. Easier for tall people I think because my second who was a better climber than me but shorter than me found peapod desperate and was totally pumped out! Don Whillans fell while climbing Peapod. So beware it is a tough climb if you don't get your limbs in the right place and I would suggest wearing a helmet because if you fall the edges of the pod are waiting for your head to swing into them.I would give this E1 5b because I wouldn't climb it again-the pod itself didn't feel safe from a gear perspective even using friends.If you're new to gitstone make sure you've done lots of easier grit climbs first and are competent at jamming and chimneys.Peapod is hard on leg muscles.
