We did Hunger into Citadel - apparently one of the best combos around, and I'd now agree! Seconded P2, led P3.

tried to sneak it in after the needle. ran out of light so bailed off the first pitch after stripping gear from traverse. nearly got cut off by the tide too, well fun.
JRae - AltLd dnf - 13/Oct/12 with M Watson

had to back off, light, tide etc.
mwatson - AltLd dnf - Sep/12

Lead pitches 1 and 3, man I find Main Cliff scary! I was shaking for most of the first pitch. Good effort to Luke on P2!
jacobjacob - AltLd O/S - 20/Mar/12

Hidden - Lead - 2012

Led P1 (Belayed above extinction/hunger which was a good place to belay from). Both pitches felt E4. First is E3 until the safe 6b crux. Second pitch is a real pumper.
