A nice route on good rock. The initial groove is much harder than anything else on the route, so look out for protecting your second with a high runner. For a more balanced route, consider starting up pitch 3 of Original Route.

First four metres of climb were pretty hard for the grade but quite simple after that. I split first pitch into two to be able to see Polly seconding. Descent via large split blocks slippery after drizzle. Would consider belaying down first bit of descent next time.
Sue Underwood - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/10 with Polly Sullivan

Polly4 - 2nd - 03/Aug/10 with Sue Underwood

No guidebook, no idea where we were going other than a vague recollection of going off route once before. All very good fun. Did it in 2 pitches, I led the first.

We split the the first section. The stretch across to the right above and behind the pinnacle is quite tricky.
