I only climbed first 4b pitch to belay so can't claim "alt leads" really but with much faffing around on the second and third pitches I ended up seconding the crux pitch in the dark with no torch. Superb route!

Quality route apart from 1st pitch which is a bit veg. - may be better to start on Heatwave. This appears to be the natural line. Lead 2nd pitch - fantastic! Mark did 1st and true 3rd.
