This climb is in 9 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Climbed in the dark using a bag of carrots and some stray shafts of street lighting. Good 1st pitch but got totally lost for the 2nd pitch ending up on some pretty nasty ground.
KRB - Solo O/S - 28/Jan/11

Pitch 2 only (probably hard 4b not 4a).

The new version. Lead both pitches. Went off route on P2 up a white licheny groove right of the black scoop, which is actually in a sort of arete, only just right of Fossible, much less than the 5m right said by the guide. This was much nearer 5a than 4a, if not harder. Am currently deciding whether to claim it as a newie given it's totally obvious.
