This climb is in 6 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
Angus led pitch 1+2 and I started up 3 but after clipping the first peg I was pretty sure it would not hold a fall and I couldn't back it up so soloed up Torero and flicked ropes round for Angus to second Poacher.

P1+2, 3rd 2nd. I wouldn't recommend it. first pitch had a very sketchy mantle onto a sloping grassy shelf with only a ledge below to catch you, the second pitch was hard to find under all the lichen and the belay was just a massive bird's nest, third pitch technical but not in an interesting way, first peg is no good!
sort of fun despite this, not the kind of thing worth hurting yourself for though

Led the middle pitch, which looked at first like it was going to be quite spicy, but turned out to be ~E2 5c. FIrst pitch was bold but good climbing, and I was gutted to fall off the final crux pitch when my shoulder took offense at the mad powerful moves and decided to tweak itself. Inescapably hard pitch, properly technical and involved fierce moves, and sustained. Felt at least french 7a+ if not harder, and its not long! Stunning lead from Felix. Ignore his mention of quickdraw touching - its his way of being bashful ; )

lead 1st and last pitch, think i cleaned the crux but i have to admit while i didn't weight it i did hesitate for a fair few seconds with my hand on a quick draw after clipping. Itís stunningly tenuous i thought i might lose my balance any second.

Sharpy turned up late. His only route of the day which he led on sight. Can't recall if I actually touched the rock on the crux pitch!
