Mostly really nice climbing and Ok gear but the topout was horrific in the dark... shame. ended up just abbing from a tree and cleaning gear.

Hard and with rubbish gear at the top climbing into a vertical vegetation jungle, shame a lower part is ok

Horrid dirty route

This was poorly protected where it mattered and a complete sandbag for VS. I've climbed several easier E1s this season. Climbed as one long pitch; horrible top out.

Left a sling + screwgate at top of climb, went back for it after doing another route and it was gone... Cleaned this route a couple of years back, hadn't got round to doing it until now. Not bad.

Led P1 but belayed just below the crux because it looked like a good stance. Should have done it properly.

Upper pitch taken corner direct, this is at least 5a and the gear is rubbish for first 2/3rds of pitch so HVS would be fair.
