The crux on pitch 1 requires boldness and good footwork - easy on top rope but requires a cool lead. There is an awkward off width higher up - be prepared.

Jillybean - AltLd - 04/Jul/11 with Martyn
Great Climb! I lead 1+3, dave 2+4. Really nice climbing with good technical first pitch. 3rd pitch traverse had some good exposure but loads of gear, perhaps too much, lots of rope drag. The awkward crack on the 4th pitch proved to be a second crux with dave leading it well, and me having a tiny slip trying a lay back on second only to land on my feet on the ledge below before climbing more head on. Definite 3 star climb.

I did the first pitch, but was on the point of backing off at the crux as the handholds were very wet and slimey. I managed to do it, however we decided to back off as we were unlikely to finish before nightfall. Sadly had to leave the hex that I abbed off :(
