Bit stiff for a HS some would say? Set off too late(what's new) and encountered a bit of uncertainty as to where the route went. Stuart was struggling on the start so had to prussic up. Cheeky surmount of the bulge too. Finishing pitch in the dark, only way I'd have it! Unfortunately only got back to the sacs at closing time - bum.

Led 2nd pitch after backing off the first.
erica - AltLd - 02/Jul/11 with Laura J

Had an 'epic' on this one as second disliked traverse on second pitch and didn't want to move right and leave protection. Thankfully a tug on the rope accidentally pulled gear out and a kindly chap near-by gave sage advice. Second unnerved for the remainder of the climb. This is a fine climb, with the first pitch (inc. traverse) providing the interest. The vegetated terraces mar the upper pitches

A very worthwhile climb but with a strenuous start and difficult route-finding in places.

Complete sandbag for a HS 4b, steep crack on first pitch felt more VS 4c/5a
