Decmorris - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/12

It was early in the year, early in the day and it was in full sun - what's not to like? - apart from the fact that it was uber-loose and, despite due care and attention, was a bit of a rock-shower for the belayer so . . . first pitch only!

A non-descipt first pitch. But the top pitch is great, although a few moves are on loose rock. Disappointed that I pumped out and fell near the top of the 2nd pitch.

Didn't finish the second pitch, rock is very loose and un-nerving! But still an interesting climb, esp being multi-pitch. Will do again one day...
