Evening epic! Surprisingly scrittly for a classic on a popular crag. Mostly HVS climbing with about 4 hard moves in total but the hard moves are all above ledges so it is all too easy to stand there and ponder commitment...

P.1. Very good.

Led P1 then went onto 2nd pitch of Aviation.

Combined this and aviation into one pitch, nice route

bailed the hard move at the top traversed to aviation, then back on to the route.

Mixed and matched with aviation. Totally ace climbing. Fell off the crux on the first pitch twice and then lead the rest of aviation.
Then did aviation's first pitch and struggled massively worth the second crux of rhino, couldn't use the footholds to pull over the lip onto the slab. I fell off twice and a pebble slowly broke in my hand..

Failed on the first O/H as I got the small flake with the wrong hand and then sliced the tip of my index finger on a sharp crystal on the flake! Will try again when finger is OK.

P1 felt strenuous until I worked out which way to put my hands! P2 cocked up the ropes and had mega drag. Then pulled a crystal off the top slab and thus thoroughly freaked out in the cold and oncoming gloom I lowered off (into old age?).

Burly at the bottom with solid gear. Flake after Aviation traverse a bit lichenous and insecure. Nails move at the top, and the gear albeit good isn't as high as you'd like for a move that hard! Good fun!
AJM - 2nd β - 29/Nov/12 with Mike Goldthorp
Sublime route, 2 hard cruxes at start and finish, both felt pretty 6a to me, and quality steady climbing in between. Moors grades feel hard, but my god they are good!

1st pitch only. Then finished up aviation

George did P1, I did P2. Well protected throughout, no harder than E2 5c.

One fall on Pitch 1, onsight pitch 2.

Toby Dunn - Lead - 26/Jul/10 with Andy Reeve
Stonking. Attempted to gain the top slab too far right, desperately scraped around for 20 minutes trying to mantel onto nothing using crystals that aren't there, reversed, went back a few feet, then used the holds instead which worked much better. Re the comment below the gear on the first pitch is in no way "thin" - plenty there and you can pretty much see it all from the ground. The only problem being the obvious one of hanging on to place it!

First pitch done before. Second pitch onsight. Tom got very cold waiting for me to do the crux!
Steerpike - Lead β - Sep/09 with Tommo
1st pitch and 2nd pitch of Aviation, all in one pitch. Superb.

Very Strenuous and on first pitch thin gear through and past the bulge, commiting until you arrive on aviation. Second pitch is
fingery to get through the bulge - palm down!
