I led first pitch, glad Will took the second as I thought it felt pretty full on for E2! Good gear but quite a hard pull around the roof. Worth 3 stars, don't be so stingy UKC!

1st pitch. intended to do as a one-er but forgot slings, belay plate, enough quick draws and general trad competancy. Cracking route though
Ram MkiV - AltLd O/S - 16/Jun/09 with al m

2nd pitch, good quality route, sketchy rock and 3 hard sections. Best done as 2 pitches (or do the traverse anyway).
