Another fine Gogarth E2 with very contrasting pitches. P1: steep and juggy. P2: fingery technical moves to get established on the slab - bold climbing in an exciting position. Led P2.
Andy Clarke - AltLd O/S - 09/Jul/14 with Dale

Led P1 - Jug fest. P2 seemed steady. Soft for E2?

I had the first pitch Andy had the second pitch. Went off route on the first pitch and climbed the middle of the wall between britomartis and toiler. Eventually got into the steep crack at the top. Think I did the crux although felt all about the same sustained on amazing holds. The second pitch me and Andy both thought was the crux pitch run out 5b climbing. Awesome

Led P2. The holds on P1 are so good you'll want to take them home; on P2 you won't want to, but you will be able to. Take a micro cam, micro to medium wires and super-glue.

Lead P2. P1 is fantastic, but both pitches are easy for an E2 route.

Soaking wet first pitch, well done Stuart. I fell off seconding as I was freezing cold. I led the top pitch. Steady. Done this years ago but not sure if I got the line right then. May have been too low on the traverse.

Both pitches, 1st pitch is piss (5a), hardest bit was finding the crack and all you have to do is keep traversing until you do. 2nd pitch was more techy, gear was ok where you needed it.

With Britomartis top pitch as I was weak!
haydng - 2nd O/S - 30/Apr/11 with Rob

pitch one has all the holds its just a case of using the right ones and powering through.. felt quite pumped towards the top. second pitch felt commiting as there is a lot of loose rock around and the holds/ route finding wasn't obvious. 3 stars.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 24/Apr/11

Hung around too long on the traverse and got pumped stupid.
frost - AltLd dog - 17/Apr/11 with D Garry

great route with 2 ver good and contrasting pitches, not sure I would recomend it as your first E2 though as its a bit run out on pitch two with some loose bits thown in for that true Gogarth top out.

Lead P1. Suprised at how far I had to traverse left before I got to the correct crack. There's a line that leads up too early which looks hard and not very well protected - epic potential. Great sustained juggy climbing once in the crack and well protected, maybe a good first Gogarth E2 (do Britomartis first and imagine a vertical line that leads to the belay when you're on the traverse of Toiler, you'll go far enough then!). P2 shortlived but looks like a worrying lead, gear's pap and the holds get smaller.
