Planned during the previous day's heavy rain and perhaps a bit optimistically. However Pitch 1 was dry and an enjoyable easy lead for me with good gear. Arranged a sack haul on first belay. Good training! Top of the climb decidedly greasy, but safe enough. Looking forward to a dry day to do the other bits of the crag.

pog100 - 2nd - 14/Jun/08 with Reaver2k

A little bemused by where the suggested belays were so we made up our own, the inital corner is EXTREMELY polished, take extreme care as your foot could easily pop off without notice! A trickyish moved over onto a ledge involved a mantle, moved back to the chimney which is also very polished on the arete but is over in a jiffy. Belayed just on the left at the top. I led second pitch aswell, popped through the broken groove and up a thinnish crack until I could move out left using the undercut crack to move out from under the roof. Over the top and belayed off a big boulder, scrambled over the top to the bottom of the next route!
