P1, Rach P2. Climbed past the ledge and had to down climb so as not to ruin Rach's pitch. First pitch was the winner for me. Nice moves and a hard to find gear. P2 is in a lovely position.

Great route, however spoilt by over-aggressive shoes and resultant epic toe pain. I led the first pitch, and think I was off-route, as what I was climbing was extremely run-out climbing to a very shoddy belay. Great route though - the position on the second pitch is fantastic.
