Led first pitch and Josh led the second. Bird flew out of the chimney past my face and gave me a good scare! Really good route
KieranFallows - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/15 with Joshcastril

Led first pitch, used in-situ nut in roof on far right because gear was otherwise non-existent for a bold move. Dex led second pitch with ease.
Matt_Ivory - AltLd O/S - 20/Jun/15 with Dexter W

Lead pitch 2. Highlights were the roofs. Slabs were the cruxes. Micros would probably be helpful for first half of second pitch before reaching the roof. Bold!
