The 2nd pitch makes the first pitch almost worthwhile. Lead odd pitches. Last pitch in the rain was rough. Started around half 9 finished by 11. Then on to Main Wall

In spite of the slight greenery this was much nicer than The Cracks. The first pitch is sketchy as hell - rope it up! And route finding is a little confusing from the first belay - go up and right in spite of the ab tat. All in all felt more comfortable on the less polished rock here.

Had a proper 'Vertical Limit' style flail on the hand traverse (but somehow managed to save it)! The grassy, muddy, heathery bits at the start were thoroughly unfun.

Honking 1st pitch, didn't read the book and took the quartz pinnacle direct and right-ish at the top. Excellent 2nd pitch, defo VS for the position and the final move onto the belay is pushing 4c.

Linked with Western Slabs and carried boots.Bit of a contrast to the routes on the nose, traversing across heather hoping it doesnt give way. Great hand traverse on P2, what a position.
tompilgrem - 2nd O/S - 04/Jun/10 with Dad
P1.Heathery scramble- fine in dry.P2Great rising traverse- with amazing hand traverse-easy but very exposed.P3 Easy- but very run out.
Overall agree that needs an competent party- and that double ropes are essential.

After a dismal and quite dangerous first pitch, the rock becomes solid and the climbing whilst straight forwards outs you in E1 positions! Absolutely mind blowing exposure and moves!

Linked up from the cracks. Pitch 1 is pretty nasty & very serious. Pitch 2 & three are excellent. Great climbing in amazing positions.
