2 pitches. Superb delicate climbing with adequate protection. Usually there are 3 pegs and a wire in situ. Pitch 2 is the crux pitch of Squirm.

Cruised up to the peg with nasty tape and decided to downclimb and return another day. Would be nice if the sling on the peg gets replaced.

Mini epic. Spent almost an hour on the crux. Tried it about 6 times before dogging the gear. Turns out my beta was totally wrong...idiot. Another one to come back to.

Nice climb though quite greasy today. Very awkward crux. Holds, holds everywhere....most of them cack.

disgusting performance. Reversed crux move 5 times wasting vauluable juice. lacking power and psyche to go for it today, eventually got the move and popped off. Currently flogging myself with a thorn tipped branch to an old Whitehouse album.Must get strong and develop, eh, oh yeh, footwork ! Muppet

Davide led P1 and then I went up the original direct finish past the dead tree mentioned in the guide. Dont think many people go that way anymore ;) Character building.

Spent a very long time below that crux move and when I finally did it, held on so tight that my forearms exploded in about 2 moves and I was reduced to trying to hug the rock to stay on :D

Pitch 1. Bonus points for the most amusing in-situ pro I've found on a route so far...

Quite easy E3 as gear is pretty good (especially if you trust the peg!)and only a few hard moves - strange in situ money holding gear in at present.....
