I led P2, if you commit to the two finger pocket its ok. Did P1 of KK as its better climbing.

Bad style. Fell on P1 when foot popped of a hold. Pulled on tat on P2. Fun route though and P2 is well worth deviating from King Kong for. Bring ice tools for the mud slope at the end of P2.

Led first pitch clean, which was cold and hard. Pulled on tat on desperate second pitch. No way is it E2 in current earthy state.

Fiasco from begining to end. Started with the first pitch of KK as a precursor to Vulture Squadron. Cold, slimy - fell off. Elected to do this instead of VS. Cold, slimy, key holds obscured by wet plants. Ending up grabbing a peg to do some gardening (and have a breather). Basically, I got a right kicking - such is life!

The second pitch was way harder than any other E2 5c I have climbed.... I fell several times and ended up pulling on gear to get up the hard section, desperate!

First moves up King Kong grove a bit worrying (no doubt more of that blocky stuff will fall off in near future!). Hard moves through crux on second pitch, especially sticking thin footholds in hot weather.

First pitch mings. Better to do King Kong P1. Better still, approach via The Umbrella Girdle. P2 is superb.

P2 (only) is nice.
