Olly led the somewhat sketchy first pitch and I did the super sketchy second pitch! Pretty hard route and there is a bit of snappy rock in places. Placed the key cam mid-crux down by my feet and couldn't even tell if it was in properly or not. Olly thought I was insane (he's not wrong!)
Ran the pitches together. Loose rock at the top of the first pitch.
First pitch, to get to Hillwthy Connection.
40m. P1 25m 4c, p2 15m 5c. Crux harder than I remembered. Not 6a, though. Overall - just E3.
Started up it but rain and hunger/thirst struck so I downclimbed but will be back. If it is E2 then it's harder than other E2s at FCQ imo
After a much needed clean and bramble removal on abseil. E2 5c?

As usual, very soft in the grade. Nice climbing though. Prob hard E2.... in fact, probably E2.... maybe hard E1.
