Led the first pitch, but Sam had a shoulder problem and couldn't follow, so had to reverse the traverse to get the gear back
gjd - AltLd dnf - 11/Aug/12 with Sam Burns

Well we tried! First pitch is long, sustained and quite bold, Sophie took a good fall off the traverse. Second and third link nicely but are quite mossy in places. Started crux pitch but fell getting into the slimy groove and decided to use handy in situ ab point to retreat. Nice climbing in a great position but not the cleanest rock I've ever climbed! Don't think I'll be hurrying back to finish it off!

Second, big fat doggie... Got gripped on the traverse so let go and ended up having to hoist my way up on tougher terrain than if I had stayed on the route :/ Good, technical climbing and some funky moves. We gave this a fair try but weren't able to finish due to wetness on top pitch. What a route! Not one I would necessarily wish to go back for...

Great climbing and pretty easy to get to relative to some of the other Classics in the Coe. Lead pitches 2,3 and 5. Don't really understand why pitchs 2 and 3 are split, should have linked them. First pitch was exciting to second, even with a back rope. Really wish I'd lead it. Crux pitch wasn't as hard as it looked (on 2nd!), although above the hanging niche things get pretty dirty. A testament to how infrequently its climbed I guess.

First two pitches only. Villain's finish soaking wet.
