Great route. Soloed up to the fork, and then took two pitches to the top. Nick led the first, which had a couple of pokey steps. I led the continuation grooves, which were pretty cruddy but good fun. Moved quickly -- six hours car to car, followed by a 12 hour drive back to Bristol.
Alex Winter - AltLd O/S - 17/Feb/14 with Nick

Soloed up to the fork, a bit worrying going over that new chockstone. I led the main gully section, Alex took a bold pitch up left above the belay to the top.
Nick Russell - AltLd - 17/Feb/14 with Alex Winter

Good conditions on the route. Followed a steep grove (fun & bold)at the top, just to the left of the fin of rock which separates Sinister Prong from George.
