Far fiercer than Northumberland Wall, but the hard bit is over quickly. Got the foot sequence wrong and fell off leading P1, quick look at the holds and got it 2nd go. P2 is brilliant!

Not sure if the obvious direct entry into the upper crack is described in the comprehensive guide - if it isn't it should be as it is independant of Route Two, makes the route more sustained without changing the grade and is just a good way of climbing the route.

Another superb Diabaig climb, and for once I got to lead the easier - but more beautiful - upper pitch. Conditions were somewhat different from my previous visit a month earlier, when I got the hotaches on the Pillar. Today the only reason to wear clothes on the crag was to prevent sunburn. Brimstone was tough E2 and tough 5c for the bottom pitch, Will, particularly after a long lay off due to injury, was going very well indeed and pretty much cruised the thin cracks of the crux, which I struggled to second. Above the crux the pitch was much easier, with a remarkable quartzy mega-jug section. The upper pitch had great, but unobvious, moves into the apex of a roof, and hardish and slightly necky moves to get established above the roof (prob worth E2 5b), thereafter delightful easy and well-protected crack leading to the beautiful easy rolling waves of the upper dome. Wonderful.

Nice to find another classic route on this cliff that I hadn't done already - tough moves on both pitches but plenty of gear to keep it okay. Slightly harder than Northumberland Wall, but still not quite E3. At least 4 5c moves on first pitch! Top pitch not a walk in the park either! Two stars.
