Led P2 as part of The Mole/Gollum link up. Care is needed to avoid rope drag - as the pitch goes all over the place. The slab is quite bold and the thread is easy to miss because it has taken on the colour of the rock! This is a fantastic pitch and deserves to be climbed more often. The top pitch looks chossy and I'd recommend doing the top pitch of Gollum - much more fun, my precioussssss.

Purple Roni 22/May/10 AltLd O/S

Interesting!!

philhilo 22/May/10 AltLd O/S

1st pitch poor. Second pitch good, sustained & high in the grade. Got off route up moss covered 5c slab and corner and overhang 30ft from gear. Had to do lots of up and down practice to reverse the moves - taxing! Roni did top pitch, good job, tricky moves and run out. Topped out at 21.45! Long day.

A long time agao, but I recall that the second pitch had the most exquisite exposure. Very impending terrain through which to climb at a reasonable standard and good pro.

120' single rope was not adequate - lots of rope drag
