Took pitch 1: Cool climb with funky mantle. Found the section directly above the mantle tricky and commiting. Had to jump for the next good hold which is a small ledge - I'm only a wee short thing so this was fun. All I can say is thank god for patient belayers.....

KKilroy - Lead - 2012

Failed to lead P1 (fact it was wet didn't help, but nor did the fact I can't do a pull up!). Then followed HRC up by some very technical moves to avoid a full-on mantelshelf (5a/b?). Traversed across blocks to join the top pitch of Chieftain. A nice combination.
