Good route. Managed to get it done on a cool cloudy but dry morning before the rain came in. Zoe did first two pitches. I did the last. Not quite sure where the 5a bit comes on pitch 2. Inclined to agree that Pitch 1 is no easier and has more sustained difficulties.

Fantastic! First Alt lead HVS, led P1, nice and spicy, Chris led p2, even more spicy, and I led p3, went a little off route right at the top, but guidebook not very clear on exact exit..... apparently, it wasn't the muddy choss fest exit I chose.... also named death on a stick by my partner!! :-)

Stacey's top out was off route.... Probably making it E2!

Si led P1&3; I led P2. P1 was a lovely bit of climbing. P2 didn't feel any harder that P1.
Leelogs - AltLd O/S - 30/May/13 with SCC

Really enjoyed leading the first pitch. Didn't think there was much difference in technical difficulty between 1st and 2nd pitch. Sparse gear throughout.

Poured with rain so we ran away off a handy tree at the top of pitch 2. Shame as it looked quite nice...

Good route, for some reason found commiting and tricky. not much gear on pitch 2 which i think freaked me out abit. slate didn't inspire confidence either. V. fast drying though.
