Led P1. Really steady, nice climbing. The belay shown in the picture in the definitive guide is very close to the top. A lower belay would give your mate a bit more fun. The top crack is lovely though.

Really enjoyed this, hard and a bit polished at the start then easier towards the top of P1 but all nice moves. The in situ anchor at the top of P2 did not look inspiring to ab off, steady but ok garden walk to the top.

Didn't at all bluster and whine about greasy conditions on initial tricky groove. Just about held it together by throwing entire rack at pitch from micro wires to size 6 dragon. Superb pitch. 2nd fun as was sustained 5b pulling rope down after an.

P1. Great sustained technical climbing on clean rock with good gear. Would probably be better to ab off in situ anchor than do the second pitch. The crack's good but it's not worth the scramble that follows.
