[Fifth Avenue, 3 kb]2 pitches. Nice route. P1 is run out from the start until you manage to get across from shag rock. Good gear is found next to the crux, in situ wire, then sustained bridging to a hanging spike belay. P2 is short but steep with bomber kit

The worst route I have ever done. Comically bad.

Awesome!P1 is great fun, bit of chimney then some funky balancy bridging. Great position. P2 has got some loose holds but not too bad for Gogarth!

Desperate. Had to rest on the crux of P1 as legs were fucked. Led p1 and p2 belayed a bit low on p2 so kath took us to the proper belay.

Good route, lead pitch1. A bit bold to start with, then a well protected hard move. Keeps coming on pitch 2 as well.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 12/May/12 with Andy

Martin led 1st pitch and belayed just above crux 'step'. I finished remainder of route.

plenty of gear on second pitch, although the first has not much it is really only hard in one place.

Conor didnt fancy the crux so lowered off. I then pulled ropes through and wobbled my way up the bugger!

Pitch 2 , a little loose and pretty scary!
al99 - AltLd O/S - 04/Oct/10 with Andrew Bitmead

Lead first pitch, crux given 5c in guide but felt soft. Smooth upper groove far more disconcerting!

i led P2. a strong antidote to 2 weeks sport in Provence: my hands were cold as i set off up the chimney (kept trying to climb the face instead of bridging / back and footing - not my most stylish piece of climbing). when you get into the groove proper this isnt easy: no holds, dubious feet, generally awkward and all very trad. great climbing though. top pitch continues the theme with some loose/hollow flakes and short-lived but still tricky contortions.
