1st pitch was a lovely lead, then heavens opened at first belay, 2nd pitch not quiet so pleasant.

with Will condie
willjtcondie 02/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

Pete lead the the first pitch the sun was beating down, set up the belay just before the rain. Quick heavy down pour turned the rock face into a river. Climbing the wet was interesting. Exchanged gear at belay, I lead the second pith, the rock had started to dry out again thanks to the warm rock and sunshine. I had to force myself to stop and put gear in as it was so positive under foot and I was enjoying the climb but to be honest there wasn't much in the way of gear placements. I would even feel happy trying to solo this route.

Nice easy climbing, can be bashed out quickly in a single pitch. Light Rain.

Lead in one pitch, interesting belay at top with not a lot to work with! Had to stack nuts together to create anchor: wicked!
