P2. Broke a head sized foothold 2m into pitch one and promptly fell off. Got the fear that it would all be like that but rock improves giving amazing climbing in great positions with adequate gear. Totally mega. Best route at the g so far!

Felt appropriate to do this on the day after the solar eclipse! Fantastic route with exciting spacewalking positions and a great way to kick off the rock season. Led middle pitch. Found it challenging on the crux sideways shuffle section - early season weakness! Nothing desperate though and in reality not that hard for E3. Last pitch is good value as well, weird moves onto and past a rib. Gear generally adequate to good. Pretty hot under a blazing sun in a blue sky, could have been in the middle of the summer! Dropped a set of micros sorting gear on the middle belay so abbed all the way down when we went to do the Savage afterwards and fortunately found them. Scrambled back up to the belay ledge only to drop a shoe! Back down again... D'oh! Pretty much gone dry and only one loose hold on the entire route. Originally planned to go winter climbing in Scotland but got put off by the forecast. This was great recompense!

Lead P2. Simply superb, amazing adventurous climbing. The rock on P2 is pretty good, better than expected. One to do when it's covered in chalk. Excellent adventure, maybe E3 because of the position?
