Peter ran P1 and P2 together. I did P3. Then Peter did P4, running to the Pinnacle on P5. I then lead the rest of P5 including the layback. Gear sparse and awkward to place at times. Abundant in the layback but very tiring to place! Route has lots of traversing back and forth and fun groove climbing. A brilliant way to wind up the crag, but felt tough; even the "easy" 4c pitches make you work for it. Line in latest (2014 FRCC) guide seems to go up the wrong crack for the final layback.
