2nd pitch, came to it tired but very enjoyable climbing, felt harder than Equinox a few hours earlier!

P1 - nice to finally lead this pitch, previous leads were P2.
Plinton - AltLd - 15/Aug/15 with Steven
P2. Gear not great on first part of P1. Climbing is sweet right thru. Sustained. Crux on P2 is testy enough with a series of moves pulled together. Classic HVS.

P2. Good climbing, but a bit of a pull on the ab-rope high up helped past the hard/bold bit...

The starting slab was quite hard for the grade, albeit probably not helped by it being damp by the time I started! Really enjoyable rest of P1. Exciting finish on P2, quite tricky for HVS.
Misha - AltLd O/S - 21/Aug/13 with Ed
Lead P1, lovely varied climbing needing a range of techniques.
P2 seemed a little trickier. Fortunately it stayed more or less dry after a shower as Misha was doing P1 and starting P2

Ricky P1, lead P2. Beautiful climb, very enjoyable. Fairhead basalt is a wee bit nicer than polished Cheddar Gorge limestone.

Led the first pitch clean. Had a rest on 2nd on the overhang at the end. Watching Chris do it was no help as he lanked it. The exposure at the top is immense! Every time I looked down for footholds I was blown away by it!
