Getting to the start was exciting on damp greasy rock but once on the route the climbing was excellent.

Tommy Moore 18/Sep/14 AltLd O/S

Led P2. Harder getting to the route than climbing it.

I ran P1 and P2 together and Stuart did the same for P3 and P4. Felt tough as i stayed in the corner for the whole of the 2nd pitch. Should have gone left i think! Good route all round though. Preferred Mickledore Grooves.

Found the crux on the second pitch, the traverse left out to the edge of of the slab, fairly hard. Smashing climb though, but give it plenty of time to dry - it was still seeping when we did it early August.
