Keith Swainson - AltLd - 20/Apr/14
Not an immediately obvious line, and I wasn't at all sure about the final pitch - I couldn't tell where it should go as everything was filthy and loose-looking. Ended up finishing up The Coffin instead, which was marginally less filthy. The first pitch was made harder as all the best holds were soaking wet. The pegs mentioned in the guide have little more value than as waymarkers - utterly crap. And I wasn't over-inspired by the second belay, only finding one good piece (I belayed further across the traverse). In retrospect, it was fun but at the time was a little dissappointing.

Lead Pitch 1, 3 and 4. I went wrong at the top of pitch 3 and ended up too far left. Sorting it out meant I had to lead P4 too, which I found surprisingly enjoyable. For information, you are looking for the mossy looking overhanging blocks at the top of pitch 3. The ones that look like the route wouldn't possibly go up. There is a peg beneath the overhang. Don't be tempted by the cracks high on the slab on the left, as these lead round the corner to vertical choss. Pitch 4 is mossy in parts, but on a dry day, there was more than enough friction.

I led pitch 1. Frigged pitch 2 on second as I was too tired and shouldn't have gone for 'one more route'. Left a size 2 DMM Wallnut in the crux of the 2nd pitch which I'd used to pull on to get out from under the roof. Colin got lost on the top pitch but found a way across 3 routes to the top! Just got down as it was going dark.

We decided to do this in two pitches as it was getting late and we had been on the crag all day. Pretty wet on the bottom pitch but otherwise a lovely climb and I felt confident even after the finger crack traverse with smearing feet to a small overhang to get to the belay. Hanging belay with a couple of bits of gear to rely on had me wobbling a bit, then Tom climbed to the very end of the rope and we couldn't hear each other to communicate. Waiting and starting to panic after a long long wait so decided to just go for it. By now I'm in full wobble mode and very glad to get to the top but never the less a lovely climb.
