I won the toss for P2. Brilliant climbing, steady all the way with good rests. Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 13/Sep/14 with Alex Winter
Got the thuggy first pitch. Steady above, with good rests. Great route. Same calibre as Venus Flytrap, and not much harder.
Alex Winter - AltLd O/S - 13/Sep/14 with Nick
Did the two pitches in a oner, wasn't expecting the first pitch to be so hard! Once through that I got the hang of things and pulled my way to victory. Fantastic climbing to a fantastic finish, top quality route. Probably my favourite route of the trip.

Lead both pitches, excellent & deserving of it's extreme rock status. The initial roof on P1 was hard, followed by sustained crack climbing (grit E1?). The crack section on P2 was fairly blank and the jams were poor.
I almost fell off the top of P2 when I went the wrong way on the final roof. Excellent.

A great route! All the better to do it on a day which started off drizzly, such that we weren't sure we'd manage to do anything at all. Phil led P1 - thankfully, as the crack was awkward and I found it pretty hard going. P2 was excellent, 5b/c crack/face climbing with rests going into a tough 5c section just below the roof, a half rest and then the crux! Careful footwork and planning the moves paid off, glad to get it clean. Well protected throughout, no more than 5c but still solid E3. Phil followed quickly while Piers struggled a bit but got up eventually.
Misha - AltLd O/S - 10/Sep/12 with Piers
Lead bottom pitch - gnarly but great fun off width, jam fest. Followed Misha on top pitch. Ran out of gas on the final crux moves over the overlap at the top. Well hard moves on p*ss poor fingerlocks on the main wall crack! Good lead from Misha.
