Awesome! I took the aid pitch, absolutely brilliant! Watch for loose rock as you approach the tat. Tat is total mess so just clipped the bit that seemed to be clipped to most other things!

The free version: an awesome adventure @ e5 6b. Somehow scraped through the super-awkward blind crux roof by the skin of my teeth with knee bars, arms bars, head jams, hand jams, drop knees, bridging, toe hooks, leg squeezes and anything else that came to mind.

Firstly is should be noted that the E2 grade is for the non aid pitches.
A superb adventure in 3 Dimensions. 4 star route in my opinion.
It can be reached at High tide also from normal abseil but does add an extra pitch of 5b.
I think everyone does this different so our method was:
Leader: back and foot up to the tat. Clip tat. (which is a complete mess circa a 1950 - 2000 daisy chain of slings and krabs in various states of decay, no one peice of gear links one side to the other. needs stripping and rebuilding) Lower down. Pendulum to fix gear. Clip. Aid round lip. Climb to belay.
2nd climb up to tat. Tension Abseil down. Pull through. Aid round lip. Climb to belay.
I recommend a fifi hook makes things much easier and gives you a bigger reach.

Great, intense outing for the whole party. Rope jam added to the fun. Large seal kept tabs on our progress. A grand day out.

chris wyatt - AltLd O/S - 28/Aug/11 with Nik Goile
first pitch is good, 5b/5c. the aid pitch is straightforward to the tat, which was good! we lowered the leader to the lip then aided to the stance, seconding the pitch was interesting, threaded the tat and abbed to the lip, then unclipped the gri gri and pulled through.
top route, worth it.
