Location location location.Kevster - Lead O/S - 11/Sep/13 with Steve Read
At 8months pregnant I was very pleased to second this cleanly, and what a fantastic route! Second pitch is definitely 5b. Stu finished P1 direct then moved across right to set up a belay for P2, which worked very well.

Probably my favorite route to date, truly unforgettable experience from start to finish. lead first pitch, finished up the 5c crack for the 3rd ( reminiscent of the toy at curbar) - but in a much more spectacular position!

Led 2 and 3. A fantastic experience. Topped just as sun was setting
Apharri - AltLd O/S - 27/Sep/12 with John Lynch
What a route, what a setting! Possibly the best multipitch E2 I've done. Lots of hard 5c sequences on P1&3 with rests on good holds / little ledges separating them - so sustained difficulties but not pumpy. Gear adequate. So not quite E3 but top end E2. A bit damp to start and a bit dirty in places to add to the experience! Ed didn't fancy P2 and it proved to be a sandbag: 5b moves (not 5a!) to the first good holds and gear a fair way off the belay ledge, then awkward hard 5a jamming. A full on experience on a great line in a very impressive place. NOTES: (1) The ab is more like 50m rather than 45m as per guide book. (2) It isn't very clear which crack to take for P1. The RH crack (which is very thin and goes through a more defined overhang) isn't in the guide book and looks hard! The LH crack (with a series of incut holds to start and going through a weakness in the overhang) is Quatermass. (3) Looked like a direct finish to P1 could be done at the same grade rather than traversing R along the ledges, though would then need to move down a bit for the P2 belay. (4) P2 is worrying 5b as noted above.
Misha - Lead O/S - 13/Sep/12 with Ed
Didn't fancy the look of P2 (damp, poorly protected for a few metres after nuts just above belay) so handed the lead back to Misha.
Great route, sustained difficulties.
