Sketchy traversing first pitch protected by clusters of micros. Ran out of nuts for final crack so placed very dodgy zero 6. Hardest part for me was the crux of the HVS at the beginning. Rain came just as kitty came up to the belay, so escaped off to the left new-routing. Very loose and vegetated. Must come back and do for real, other person can lead the bold pitch.

E1 5a for the first pitch - great sustained bold climbing. More thuggish second pitch, great route.

Cold day in the hills but an excellent climb, worth the long, exposed approach. We thought it felt tough for the grade, first pitch is very bold and thin in places, more like E2 5b if you go direct up the blank grey wall. Second is more like E1 5b and very different, steep and juggy with a a nice technical crux high up. Abseils currently in place and one long abseil on 60m ropes will get you into the gully if you don't want to ab twice! 8 month pregnant lady cruised it all of course!!

Led the 5a pitch. Bold, and thin in places. Enjoyed seconding the chimney on the top pitch. Think I mislaid my headtorch here though :(

Struggled to find gear on the first pitch (basically soloed) and the beginning of the second pitch (run out from the belay to the black rib). The technical crux is well protected.
