Led P1. The jug is very difficult to find.
Kirill - AltLd dog - 17/Nov/13 with Mike Moss
Led P1. Clipped a fair few in situ rusty bits under the roof. Cut loose for about 1/2 a second at one point. Wild move but safe and easy if you can do a pull up on jugs.
Owen W-G - AltLd O/S - 04/Aug/13 with Preston Matt
Owen made short work of the roof. Exhilarating move, pulling on big jugs. I led the second pitch which was straight forward but delicate because of the loose rock.

burly and intimidating going through the roof
givemetea - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/10 with Helen King
Well, its perfectly described in the guidebook - an intro to the art of roof thuggery. Steady enough up to the break below the roof, and protectable in the break and roof if you have the right size camps. Thea had 5 bits of gear....which all held when she launched into the roof, feet cut loose, found a reasonable hold but couldnt oomph through the move to get established, and dramatically said "have you got me, i'm off". Off she was, and 5 mins later was back on, and burlied through it with more ease and a smile. I of course enjoyed every minute of it safe on second. Second pitch which i led was an anticlimax.

Reachy through crux but great move, all good gear placements taken by dead gear but still a few spots. Had major rockfall at top, take care.

Bit reachy through the crux over the roof, which I lead, finding all the decent cracks already full of dead gear. Apparently it's better if you pull up with your left hand! Good belay off to the right on two threads. Top pitch steep and quite loose, lead delicately and cautiously by Dave.
