1st pitch only to set up top rope on The Pump. Very wet - but this forced me to concentrate and climb steadily and safely.

Did pitch 2 of First Amendment (E2 5b) by mistake! This goes up the obvious, huge flake after the first belay. Slape goes up one of the further, smaller flakes - be warned. Top pitches are full of interesting plants, a must for aspiring botanists.
Pete_Frost - AltLd β - 07/Jun/13 with Kin Choi

Led P1. Quite stiff for 4c. There's something to it. Pete as usual deviated onto another route 5b pitch of First Amendment! In fact, there are so many routes within a few meters of each other. Just well confusing. Led P3. The 2003 Climbers' Club Llanberis as per usual crap! There are 2 cracks in the centre of the wall. Why do people still buy their guides? Pete led P4 which was jungle bashing. There are routes in this world that I'm happy to miss out! 1 star for P1+2. Bag of sh...P4. That's why there's no star in the guide. Walking off is tedious at best. Just don't do it, ok.
