Lead pitch 2. Was pretty nervous before hand, the roof looks so big and steep from the ground, but it gets smaller and less steep as you get closer and it's not actually too hard. The second pitch maybe only felt 5c in the end, though it certainly makes up for that in intimidation and some boldness and is probably a harder adjectival E4 than the 1st pitch. Pitch 1 is really good too, pretty well protected with a tricky move. tim newton - AltLd O/S - 21/Sep/13 with gwen lancashire

spooky top pitch on creaking, detached columns. Maybe only 5c, but feels serious.

If it was 1 pitch it would be E5. both pitches are stout E4 with hard 6a moves. Superb climbing, not to be missed or under-estimated.
