P1 & 3. Pero lead 2 & 4. The bold move across Overhanging chimney on p2 is possibly 5a.

Pero - AltLd - 22/Sep/14
Lead pitches 1+2 in one, nice traverse and quite gymnastic moves to pass the big jammed block. Definitely felt like 5a to me, probably not enhanced by considerable ropedrag. Don't really see how I could've avoided that though.
GermanAlex - AltLd O/S - 14/Sep/14

Biggest sandbag route I've ever done, felt way more like HVS with plenty of 5a sections, though there was some great climbing at times. 2nd pitch was scary as hell going up the overhanging chimney with hardly any gear but somehow I led it. Worst "rest day" I've ever had!

Led all but P1. Epic 2nd pitch. Coming round the corner after the delicate traverse was a little shocking, and after committing to it was really pleased to get up the chimney quite well. Last pitch up the top of Ribstone Crack was good too. Worth more than 1 star for sure.

Led second pitch. Did not complete the route. My belay plate came off my harness somehow on the second pitch. Clive was not happy to second the chimney with only a waist belay, so I lowered him to a ledge, abseiled down to him, and we both abseiled off. A bit of an epic.

I lead pt 2 across the black slab, could not make move to "cross over" to enter the far chimney, Note it crosses over then goes up rather than trying to go straight up the chimney), I down climbed back across the traverse to the belay, Simon led through. Still difficult even as a second. Top pitches ok, as for Crack stone rib at Severe.
