p2. good route, not easy. going over the overlap looked hard until you pulled in to the crack and found the jugs on the left.

After climbing scratch arÍte we abbed to the start of this. A very very good climb but a bit eliminate. Unfortunately you can go round the crux on the overhang but this is a variation to itch. If you stick to the thin crack above the overhang its hard I thought 5c, But E2 is fair as the gear is very good.

After doing the first pitch of Itch. Really good. Wasn't really sure about where to cross the roof - ended up going through the crack just to the right of the alternative finish to Itch which felt pretty hard.

Nice flake in the beginning, nice wove over the roof.

Abbed in to do this after warming up on Scratch (which was very enjoyable). Pleasant slab scrack climbing to the roof, which thankfully proved to be a lot easier than it looked (used the hand rail rather than the crack). Not sure why it gets E2 in the '89 guide as nothing particularly hard. Perhaps a bit bold towards the bottom.

Brill clean pitch

Had no idea what this was just liked the look of it. Climbed the awesome layback crack then went up the groove left of the roof (as for itch?) good pitch.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 24/Mar/11 with Thomas Martin

The guidebook description is rubbish. The top of the layback crack is at the LH end of the roof. If you then moved down and R as stated in the guide you would end up well below the roof in the middle of the slab, not in a position to pull over the roof. Instead move up then R onto the upper slab. Amendment; oops: sorry guidebook team. Did the variation finish to Itch by mistake

Last pitch of this gained via Mangoletsi. Go back and lead this - it's amazing! Fantastic flake crack with smeary feet, quartzy nobbles and big roof!
