Wendy's excellent lead. Laybacked all the way up the first pitch, didn't need to wrestle with the chockstone at all. Second pitch may not have been the crux but had some good awkward moves.

I'm not keen on lay-backing. Led P1 in a bit of a siege style. Chock stone is now deep in the crack and not reachable. Top out is a bit desperate. P2 excellent and a good crack climb in its lower reaches. Lots of gear. A climb with lots to offer ! 2 stars!
Lumbering Oaf - AltLd O/S - 09/Jun/14 with Matt George
Matt applied siege tactics and eventually conquered the brutal first pitch. The hard moves are at the top, after the last pro. He laid back before stepping his right foot into the crack. I bridged, and then stepped into the crack. Tough pitch.
I lead pitch two, which starts with a jamming crack. Hard to get established. The climbing and position of the second half of P2 are incredible - I'd highly recommend!

the first pitch was a straightforward layback ,its a good job i was well secured on the belay ledge for pitch two as the increasingly strong gusty wind blew me over,it didn't help the climbing on the exposed upper pitch either.

Really enjoyed this climb. First pitch is strenuous (basically a long layback - the chock stone half way up is a crucial sling placement). Second pitch is beautifully exposed and the views are excellent! :)
