P1 &2 Awesome route. Shame it is protected by pegs. Would not want to fall off the crux. Top of P2 is like a V2 in the sky!

Lead pitch one, but fell 3 times on the crux, and then resorted to a couple of pulls on gear to get up it. Very dodgy pegs at the crux, though you can larks foot the crucial one and get a good small cam in next to it and a good cam way out right, if all the gear ripped at the crux, you'd go a long way onto more poor gear. IMO the pitch would be E3 5c to the crux, and is probably more like E4. The second pitch is brilliant and very well protected. The whole route was an awesome adventure, with some really great climbing on it.

Fantastic climbing all the way. The crux of the first pitch is pretty pushy for E3 but it has pegs eye level so a good one to go for it on. Solid E3

Lead 1st pitch. Pokey through the roof. Cool top pitch!
