Nails moves on 1st pitch with no gear. Fell off at 7 feet. tried again and couldnt make the move, so traveresed onto Birdlime Crack to rest. Tried 2nd pitch but was tired from trying to work out moves on the 1st pitch. weird shift from finger and hand jam into an arm bar. Think i could do it fresh?!

Pitch 2.
Mike_Watson_99 - AltLd rpt - 09/Sep/12 with Fiona

Pitch 2 only. No falls, but rest required. Will get it clean next time now I know what's coming. Mike cruised it, being taller probably helps.
Fiona Reid - Lead dog - 02/Sep/12 with Mike

Pitch 2. Perhaps easier for the tall?
Mike_Watson_99 - 2nd - 02/Sep/12 with Fiona

Unexpected fall off upper tier, will focus more on feet next time and it will be fine. Great, sustained route.

Tried to lead first pitch and failed, backed off second pitch and got top rope from Nathan. Went back and worked first pitch, Nathan got it in the end and I followed. Second pitch easier, strenuous but I could have lead it. First pitch has no gear after first horizontal break (unless you place a runner in Birdlime Crack) and feels thin after that, even topping out is on slopey holds.

Enjoyed the first pitch. Belayed Ian Jones on the second. After watching him faff for ages on the second (he later soloed up an E2, just to put it in perspective) decided just to let the others climb it. Harry ended up standing on Pavla's shoulders to get over the crux move!
