1st pitch was nice, good feet and hands all the way. 2nd pitch although nice to climb, was virtually unprotected. Anything big enough for gear was loose with chunks of rock coming away, beware!

Second pitch only, well everyone else only does the first ;-) It's a steady climb with plenty to find for hands and feet. Protection is poor and watch out for some loose flakes, give everything a little test before committing.

4 pieces of protection, second pitch no protection as such.
