Lots of top end 5a climbing on the first pitch and a bold start to the first peg. Proper E1 I'd say.pheotleyr - Lead O/S - 12/Nov/13 with Jana
abbed off after first pitch. Felt spicy but i'd missed a peg. Hardish 5a by pegs, as soon as you reach actual gear the climbing gets way easier.
Kemics - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/13 with Neil
First pitch was manageable. Moves required some thought, so stiff for 5a I thought. Second pitch great value for money.

P1 a bit bold getting to the first peg. Good balance climbing.

Lead P1+P2. Easy enough, but run out so rather hard to relax and enjoy P1. P2 is a superb easy exposed romp

Wouldn't trust any of the pegs on P1, hence deserving of E1. Quarry spike and nut before the overhang would have held

Run out traverse felt a bit worrying although all the moves were in balance so not desperate. Nice route.

Led P1, Andy P2. Mainly pegs on P1 and a long runout to the first one but relatively easy.

_m.cox_ - 2nd rpt - 12/Jul/11 with Steve Winslow, Tom Harrison
Led first pitch, I think it is worthy of E1 just because of the scary start and run out between the first and second peg. Although the climbing is pretty easy.
Quarryboy - AltLd O/S - 10/Jul/11 with Rob Stanfield
Can see how first pitch start would have been scary with lack of gear and awkward sloping holds. Neither of us found second peg near the first though. Led second pitch, which was fantasticly exposed!

Did first pitch this time - lovely route - steep but there is a very fine crystal edge just where you need it - also there are 2 pegs at the bottom of the hard bit

Great first pitch 3 stars for me! 2nd pitch mine - airy traverse for sure!

Awesome 1st pitch - Probably the best individual pitch I've done on Main Wall so far...!!
Convinced J that the 2nd pitch was well within him - and he seemed to enjoy it.

Led 2nd pitch. Guidebook says 'scant protection'. Bold traverse at beginning of 1st pitch, but reasonably well protected after that
cornishben - AltLd O/S - 12/Sep/07 with Chris Sims
Led P1. Most enjoyable. Very easy for E1. Gear is only "scant" for the first 20' on P1. After that it is fine.
Left a bit far left at the top I think.

A quickdraw aided retreat to a resting position...I'm suitably ashamed of myself.
Seconded by a one-eyed, trainer-wearing, chalkless scary chap who kept taking photos of me.
