It was actually easier not to look for footholds as the existing ones were too polished to use.

If you're looking for an easy first outdoor on rock...this is it. Nice climb... could almost scramble first pitch.
The book says it's 3x 12m pitches. We did it in two to save mucking about.
Pitch One - to the first sturdy tree
Pitch Two - rest of the way.
At the top of this climb (Lunchtime Ledge, a huge safe area with loads of trees) we went on to Original Route

Soloed a random line at the beginning to reach some friends who were on the route and thinking about backing off. Dropped them a rope to get them past the move they were having difficulty with (the polished one).

The obvious footholds were extremely polished, but there were less obvious alternatives that were still good. Communication from the top was difficult due to traffic, so Jon soloed half way up and relayed messages!
