Really nice climbing, although very strenuous in the first half of the pitch none of the moves are too hard. good rest on the ledge before a short amount of 5b to the top. second pitch only as it seems more logical

P2 only, amazing!

Amazing second pitch, interesting moves on start of p1 then a bit messy to get to tyhe belay.

P2 only - a great climb. Clean and dry. P1 looks daft.

Very good but again with short-lived difficulties. Hard E1 more than E2 maybe?

Led first pitch which was very poor. The second pitch was excellent.
Shaw Brown - AltLd - 27/May/12 with George North

Did it in one. Quite sustained and a bit licheny (not really a surprise given the name) but doesnt interfere with the route particularly.

Only 2nd pitch. Great pitch, good gear and some cool moves. Defiantly worth of several stars.

Hol led the first pitch, I led the second. Surprisingly, it was a really good route, although very mossy on the ledge leading to the belay at the end of pitch 1 (be careful) and fairly lichenous on pitch 1 (strange that!).

After P1, escaped (scrambled down), as it started raining.
