I enjoyed pitch 2 - not too puzzling. Pitch 3 we think we missed first bit and went up B route but did the crux layback crack. Pitch 4 - 4c?? Couldn't see how traverse went so opted for the crack. Couldn't quite get good hold of top before running out of steam. Rested on gear with nuts unzipping due to belayer being to the side. Prob deserves HVS 5a for that pitch. Top pitch v nice. Good route!

Sort of. Managed to miss pitches 2 and 3 by going right at the top of the 1st pitch (the crack) instead of left.

Beware pitch 2 - you may puzzle over it for some time if you do not get it straight away. A long reach helps if the overhanging crack on pitch 4 is taken.
Nigel Jones - AltLd - 04/Sep/10

Ste went up 1st pitch of slab & bracket to get us to the start. Did pitch 1 of crows nest. We went off route on the second pitch, rekon we finished up B route.
