Led P1 & 2 then abseiled off before the ungraded pitches after Jackie injured her hand following P2. P2 climbed direct off the belay feels harder than P1. Both leader and second should be of equal ability because the traverse beneath the small roof isn't well protected for the second, and if it is at all damp the moss on the ledge would be very slippy.

Started up phantom rib, ended up here somehow, abbed down after P2 (probably)

P1&P2. Better than others suggest in my opinion, although I agree that pitch 2 is harder than 4a. There's a high spike runner for the traverse on P1.

Rubbish route top 3 pitches are loose and vegetated, first 2 pitches are low in quality

First corner (shared with Nea) still pretty wet. Traverse left on mossy slab not inspiring. Descent under under roof with no gear. Felt harder than a HS, and not gear for the second. The corner of the second pitch was also wet, and with daylight fading we abbed of big block.

Belay confusion on Phantom Rib - I set up the belay too high so Si couldn't do pitch 2, so he climbed straight up on Hazel Groove, so we only did pitch 2 (which was surprisingly tricky!). Then we abbed back to the right belay stance for him to lead pitch 2 of PR - I was not popular!

Seepage on first 3 pitches added to challenge. Went up pinnacle on 3rd pitch to avoid slime-fest in the gully. Confused by guidebook description of last pitch - couldn't find "good holds" anywhere so abbed off from Phantom Rib ab point.

Slippery when wet. Which it was.

Thought 2nd pitch was harder than 4a. Abbed off from yew tree

Rather wet start made for a harder climb. Jamie took first pitch with that traverse and 3+4. I took 2nd and 5th.

Via the Direct Start. Pitch 2 was half wet, pitch 3 and 4 were rubbish and we scuttled sideways and abseiled off after that as Alistair had forgotten his trainers and didn't fancy the descent in rock boots. Generally not a great route.
