P2 then finished up Overlapping Wall as a big pitch. Chimney pitch excellent with nice moves turning the overlap.

Best not fall off on pitch 1. Still a worthwhile climb though

Backed off second pitch, which is disappointing as it appears I've led it before with no problem.

Pitch 1 very run out. I tried p2 but lowered off at the chockstone. Paul frigged to top of p2. Abbed from top of p2 as darkness descended (gear is still there?? If so it'd be nice to have it back!).

Pitch 1 is a lot more than "fairly" bold - if you come off before you reach the thread, you'd probably hit the ground. Eek. Pitch 2 has a lot more bridging than any chimneying, but it's really nice.

Pitch 1 was dcey on snappy rock with poor gear chimney on pitch 2 was very wet which made it tricky and fairly unpleasant Pitch 3 felt a bit contrived. Not a great route

Fantastic climb,glad i've got long legs for the bridge bit on pitch 2 and you'll be glad when you find the "Climb Wall" jug hold at the side of the large chock stone to give your bridged out legs a rest :)
