I led the easy pitch! This is E1 in GroundUp and Rockfax. Even the old Tremadog guide gives P2 5b so not sure why its HVS overall??

Led pitches 2 and 3 in one. The traverse on 2nd pitch is quite serious with poor protection. E1,5b is an appropriate grade in my opinion.

Seconded to get to the top of the crag after failing on titanium man. Some great airy sequences on this.

I thought HVS 5b fair grade as most of climb is a lot easier and thin move left well protected by peg and wire (stay low, much harder if you traverse higher). It is committing heading to the arete though so I can see why people think E1. **

Traversed high and discovered I could not reach (by about 3cm) to make the move, and took a 3m inverted lob - doh! Traversed low and made harder moves to gain arete from below the second time. Very good climb.

Went to finish direct on P2 and took a monster wanger onto an RP; Nice!
