I led odd pitches

masa-alpin 22/Jun Lead O/S

I lead P1 and 3, Patrick did P2 and 4. The line is not the most obvious, particularly in P1. However, the quality of the route is amazing in both the setting and climbing itself! Maybe the best E2 I have ever done!

Sooooooo good, in fact as good as it gets. Every pitch 3 star. Top pitch stunning. BE WARNED - ABSEIL ROPE NEEDS PROTECTION ON A POINT 5-10m DOWN. PROMINENT FLAKE WITH A GAP BEHIND CUT ROPE TO THE CORE - and I was on the other end :-/

Will add comments on the route later. SEE PHILHILO'S COMMENT BELOW RE PROTECTING THE AB ROPE AT A POINT 5-10M BELOW THE EDGE. I rigged my rope on our first day and it was used for two days by a number of teams and ended up being quite furry around that point as it was going over a few little ledged but still perfectly safe. When another rope was rigged the following day (using the same anchors), it was somehow rigged in a slightly different line which meant that it caught on a sharp flake and within a few abseils it was trashed to the core. Helen did a great job of tying off the damaged section and abseiling past the knot. THIS COULD BE LETHAL, TAKE CARE!!! Also, suggest tying a knot at the end of the rope as you can't see the bottom from the top and a 100m rope won't necessarily reach all the way down to the sea (and there is no belay ledge anyway) - apparently the rope that go trashed was a fair few metres short. My new (not yet shrunk?) 110m rope was plenty long enough, had to tie it off at the bottom to stop it getting wet. Be warned!

Led 1 and 3. Exceeded all expectations. Best route I've ever done. Felt steady at the grade even with some wet holds on pitch 3. Excellent rock.

Fascistic. It was even sheltered from the wind, bonus.

Amazing route in perfect conditions. NOTE: Rope protection essential for abseil in. There is a rub point about 5 metres from top of abseil (an upward pointing flake and some slightly projecting rock just above that). Another party had their rope trashed at this point, which was rather scary for the person who found it on descent)

I was the only one of four who found this hard. Everyone agreed it was E2 though and anyone who says otherwise is a fool. Personally I think there are better climbs here. Only 3 stars from me.
