Great route! Led both pitches. Tricky swapping with my second on the tiny belay stance! But worth it. The first pitch is good climbing, the second pitch is fun climbing! :P
Was a hard E1 though.

Well... we did P1 then Rog went pretty far off route and I finished up the top of Batt crack. Hold snapped off in my hand (fell) whilst on second.

Kirill - AltLd dog - 13/Nov/11 with Charles Moreton
Led p1. Can't understand the votes for E2. Start of p2 is potentially thuggy but it's possible to use a bit of finesse making the move across under the O/H (don't go up too high)
cem - AltLd rpt - 13/Nov/11 with Kirill Spiridonov
Led P1. Nice and technical, unlike the thuggy P2.

The second pitch was brutal! The first was exactly what it says in the guide, nice wall climbing. The second pitch was scary, thuggy, steep and the start was frankly dangerous (potential fall strait onto the belayer). I hung around securing a decent nut on in situe and crap gear before setting off to prevent a potential factor 2 fall onto the belay. Did the rest clean. Very enjoyable once away from belay.

My first Swanage E1. Lead P1. Felt easy for 5b though the gear wasn't great. P2 strenuous but not that difficult. Great route and I'm well chuffed.

Lovely sustained first pitch and a nice belay stance. almost lost it going over the bulge on second pitch thanks to a crumbling hand hold, the rest was pretty nice and on big holds!!

Led both pitches. P1 pleasantly enjoyable but first 5m of P2 felt well hard, straight from the belay. Had a bit of a moment after mounting the bulge - scared, gripped, too pumped to place pro, you know the feeling. Tony looked a bit worried too, especially since I'd ignored instruction to belay on L, such that he was right underneath a wobbling leader! A bit E2ish?

My first E1. Seconding the wall on the first pitch the 'downward-pointing spike' came off in my hand. Leading the top pitch a foot-hold broke off as I mantled over the roof. Great atmospheric climbing that I enjoyed immensely!
