Lead P2, followed P1, Both clean.

mishabruml 14/Mar/15 Lead O/S

Lead P1 then traversed to black streak ab to escape (getting dark). Shame because P2 looked amazing, however P1 was the best climb I've ever done (so far). Also my first HVS. The moves were perfect, scary on lead, little run out and the slab bits got me gripped to fuck- was buzzing off the adrenaline for abut 6 hours after topping out! Gorgeous sunset, 4* rock, what a way to end the day. Need to come back and do the whole thing some time...!

Hmm, found this harder than The Pillar, but did get on it straight after an 18 hour drive, on dear. Great route though, but also a surprising amount of suspect rock for such a classic. Didn't finish it.

Stunning route :-) I led 2nd pitch cos I thought it looked easier!!! Pah! Very sustained, technical, but well protected all the way. At the absolute limit of what I can lead though so was quite slow.
