i lost the coin toss and had to do the "Mod" (not) pitch to get to the route and Kev got to lead the route. Nice route. Took ages to find way down though, involving several rope lengths of traversing/down climbing on grass! Next time maybe worth doing more than one route up there?

Exciting and very worthwhile route. The initial steep wall/arete is a little bold but the holds are all there. I had to have 2 attempts at the crux moves around the overhang. As usual, footwork is the key to success. Respect to the first ascensionists in 1920.
