Led P1. Jing P2. Abseiled off the Great Ledge. Crux on P1 is polished but very manageable. The rest of the route is pretty easy but don't expect to find much gear.

Led the second pitch.
The first pitch is pretty easy apart from one move onto the overhang which is polished and was also a bit wet.
Second pitch fairly straightforward but some of it's fairly bond, there's around 6m section with no good gear, I used some micro-wires.
Enjoyed the climb, abseiled from the great ledge (50m ropes reached the bottom).

Si lead the 1st and 4th, tom lead the 2nd and I lead my first climb on the 3rd, was a nice plce to practice placing gear.

Pitch 2 felt easier than the last time I led it, having placed more gear and not running it out so much (hint: there are some cam placements in the boreholes, and you can also place a wallnut in one if you fiddle around with it).

Lovely outing - only marred by the scream and loud thump from the next bay, which sounded scarily like someone decking out. Turned out to be a torso sized lump of rock that a leader had pulled off which landed about three inches from his belayer. Lucky.

Did 1 (Me) and 2 (dan). Great committing crux on 1, ended up sitting on the little ledge to the left. Moved over to do

Lead Pitch 2 + 4, James 1 + 3. Fun climb. Would reccomend diverting for pitch 3 as suggested in the guide book.

Found pitch 2 a bit intimidating for some reason (a technical move above crap gear with ledge hitting potential if the gear ripped). Eventually managed to work a decent no.1 nut in, but still found this a bit intimidating. Probably suffering a bit after being in the sun for 3 days solid!
Chris Sansum - Lead dog - 13/Apr/09 with Gary Lewin
linked the last two pitches - nice climb. Also went up the more direct route to the Great Ledge. Gotta be worth HVS.

Great route, if thin on big gear on pitch 2. Final two pitches were strung together, but not worth the effort - jungly and loose, and nothing to belay on. Suggest you find alternative finish.

Pitch 1 seemed rather tricky for the grade, well led by Carmen. Pitch 2 was just great fun, easy but sustained at the grade. Finished via Bacchanalian, which should really be described as the main route, with the old scramble finish relegated to a footnote.

quite a bold slightly exposed 2nd pitch for a HS and the insitu wire is still in place. Ended up on this route after trying for Suspect device. A confusing new Y valley guide book entry for "Suspect device" ..... does anyone else feel that the entry is wrong?

Due to route finding error I lead up an HVS (Gryke) passing the crux before I realised my error. I traversed back onto the route and continued to the stance. Nick couldn't follow the 4b crux of the proper line, so I abseiled down, top roped the first part of the pitch and set up a stance just above the crux to talk the others through it.
