Superb top pitch! Bottom pitch is not as bold as ud think and just has one stopper move.

Led p1, which felt bold but has gear where you need it. 2nd pitch felt like vulture at tremadog!

Our second route at Fairhead after Northern Exposure. The Mask was clean, in the sun, and featured some great climbing and positions - exactly what we'd come for.
