Led pitch one. Great moves, and a lovely wondering line, it pays off to have a think about rope work before setting off.
Really enjoyed this climb!

Led p1. One can avoid the much harder start by taking an immediate step left into a shallow scoop: a bit balancey and not much gear, though.

The always-strenuous start is harder now (Probably 5a) due to the loss of a block from the cave.

I lead the money pitch, traversed to the left in low so hand was on the foot hold on the arete. Didn't think this was harder than VS 5a.

Climbed it as a single pitch. The 8-meter traverse is airy :) Careful with rope drag.

P1, steep start, easy middle, delicate finish. P2 straight forward. Stiff for VS. Got hit by a big lump of rock on mid height belay :(
jezb1 - AltLd - 16/Oct/10
Tough (but good) first pitch and loose second one (now realise the direct line I took from belay to top isn't correct) ...I somehow bombed my belayer with a sizeable chunk of rock (fell as I unweighted it - didn't move whilst I was stood on it) ...sorry Jez!
The Ivanator - AltLd O/S - 16/Oct/10 with Jez
Tricky first couple of moves, but all there. very careful ropework required to prevent rope drag - you have to have double ropes for this route. Horrible top out on second pitch. Would have been good to have left a rope in place to protect the final few moves up the soil and loose stones.
Andy Chubb - Lead - 10/Oct/10 with Jim Mulvaney
Hidden - AltLd - 06/Oct/10
Lead first pitch. Poor ropework :-( and went too high for the traverse right to the slab section. Made it a lot harder than it should have been.
gibsond - AltLd O/S - 19/Sep/10 with Pilar Martinez
Really nice route, though I think I started slightly to far left of the boulder, over a poorly protected section, fortunately easy climbing though. Final slab of P1 was awkward. Luca lead P2, his first 4b lead and also first multi-pitch lead - good job :)
ben.richards - AltLd O/S - 19/Aug/10 with Luca Celano
Started to go off route on the first pitch traverse - made it feel harder than it should have. I think moving down a couple of steps after starting the traverse gives better holds. Second pitch was fun, enough placements where necessary, but plenty of really positive holds to climb well above gear. Scrabbely top out, but more soil than loose rock.
