Interesting!!
Purple Roni - AltLd O/S - 22/May/10 with Phil Leng

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.
