Late in evening so abseiled after first pitch. Pegs have been replaced in groove but less than bomber gear up to first one

First trad route in over two months -- felt pretty jittery. Led first pitch. Some good climbing up the groove, but a couple of the pegs are looking a bit shonky.

Led 2nd & 3rd pitch. First pitch pretty bold with the current state of the pegs. Fair E1 5b if they were replaced?

Dogged the hell out of the first pitch, decided it wasn't a good idea to go further.

1 rest - after traverse right on 1st pitch. Grabbed peg after struggling to locate a decent handhold! Shame to rest on rope after completing crux clean. Probably a bit knackered psychologically by that point! Great route. The last pitch is tricky too!

Good strong lead from Chris.

P1 only. 2 rests. Abandoned route after seeing signs that peregrines were still nesting on P3. BMC sign indicated bird ban up to 1st July or until chicks had left nest. There were no signs of peregrines or twitchers so we guessed they had left (& BMC database just stated a ban up to 30-Jun). About 2/3 of the way up pitch 1 some peregrines started circling some distance above (the nest is halfway up pitch 3), so we decided to ab off. Will be back when they have gone. If the rest of the pitches are as good as P1, this is a great route.

P1 & 3 A foothold snapped whilst pulling on 2 sloping sidepulls on P1. I think J was just as startled as I was...! Plenty of feathers and bird shit from P2 onwards.
