An experience but not one that I enjoyed. For me much harder than the other E5s I did in the weekend - felt like E6 in comparison - because climbing is all hard to read and insecure, often going away from the gear. Very little that you can just crank your way through (technical "spit you out" chimney squirming at the crux). Has you on edge wondering if you are committing to the right moves all the time. 2nd pitch is thankfully contrastingly burly and straightforward! Climbed as one pitch.

Led pitch 2, which was hard enough! Greasy climbing, interesting route finding. A great mini-adventure route.

A 4h mega epic. The incoming tide necessitated an impromptu mid-pitch belay & it all went downhill from there. Sooooooo slippy. Saved by Conor's terror-induced crimp strength & a smart decision to re-arrange the belay such that my 8m gear-ripping-whipper off the crux wasn't a Factor 2.

Shat myself on this. Greasy as sin. And tricky climbing I thought, certainly unconventional. Seconded the first pitch, thank goodness!

Led pitch 1. Fun route.

Lead pitch 1. The most varied trad pitch I've done. This route pretty much reminded me of every reason why I climb. Also it gave me a taste of the leap like no other route I've done there has. Not just climbing, but escaping.

Funky trad!!! Wild 1st pitch, insecure chimney contortions!

Lead 2nd pitch. Not as tasty as the first, but still a little tricky
Alice Thompson - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/13 with Dan Gibson
Led top pitch. went through the hole. Don't know why the fuck I did that. One of the grimest 20 mins ever.

Stunning. Well protected but feels quite comitting. One of the best adventure routes I've done.

Amazing, amazing route. Crazy climbing up the runnels, moves are interesting and gear is perfectly sufficient. Tricky to read on all the hard sections. Just soooo good! Best route in Pembroke. Taking lots of rock 1's isnt necessary but, do save one for that perfect slot.

2nd easy pitch. First pitch is just magnificent!! Most memorable climb in the Leap, even to 2nd. The funky drop-down crux is cool, and then the massive runnel feature gives brilliant 3D climbing. So jealous Al got to lead it, bastardo!
