Led 1st pitch. Top pitch was a bit wet so kudos to Euan for leading that. Nice route!

Split into 2 short pitches. Hugh did the first (pumpy) and I led the second (technical). Was a bit wet with seepage, but there's enough holds there to make it work.

Me p1, Hana p2. First E2, psyched! But only because Gary Latter's topo is wrong and I thought this was the HVS!!! Climbed to the crux roof and got pumped so lowered off, had a rest and then went for it. Smashing!

A superb climb. If the rock was nicer it would merit ***.

I lead the first pitch and fell on the crux.
R0bbie - AltLd dog - 20/Jun/09 with Henning


Fun route, first pitch is pretty pumpy, second has short sharp crux, so both equally hard. Low in grade...
