Lowered off the 1st pitch last year after the rock collapsed when I was climbing. 1st pitch is still pretty sketchy. Second pitch has a nice move through the roof. Probably better to just do pitch 2.

Led both pitches as one long climb. Bottom was quite bold, top was fun

Nice and exposed second pitch with good holds where you want them.

Wow. The first pitch is truly terrible and dangerous. I took a whipper onto a rusty peg when the foothold and handhold I was using simultaneously snapped off. I opted to lower off the rusty peg rather than continue up this horrendous pitch. Not worth it.

We had hoped to do Alcasan but started late, it rained, and were forced to move slowly through loose rock that we just sacked it off and topped out. turns out Alex forgot either of his headtorches so all in all a good decision.

Led as one single pitch, took a while picking a route through the loose stuff.

Found the overhang move with crap feet a bit burly but other than that pretty easy. Pulled a big chunk off not paying attention so need to look out for the chossy bit
