felt very nervous for 3/4 of this but really enjoyed the last few moves. E2 5b first pitch! Another notch on my avon tomohawk. Led P 1 + 3. Can tell I have been clipping bolts for a couple of weeks!

A great pitch but hard for E1 I have definitely done easier E2's here. Didn't start well dropped gear half way up so came down to retrieve it. Had another go everymove is tough 5b. Got near the top where there are no hand holds. clipped last peg using a heal hook but didn't feel like falling on these pegs. So had to rest on top peg to find very fiddly back up gear which u would struggle to place on the lead. Eventually got to the bolts Johny found it way to hard wasn't expecting it to feel this hard. So I had to do some mad yosmite swinging on abb to retrieve gear. All in all a exciting experience only on pitch 1. I will be back

Led 2nd & 3rd pitch. First pitch pretty bold with the current state of the pegs. Fair E1 5b if they were replaced?

First trad route in over two months -- felt pretty jittery. Led first pitch. Some good climbing up the groove, but a couple of the pegs are looking a bit shonky.

Dogged the hell out of the first pitch, decided it wasn't a good idea to go further.

First pitch only.

1 rest - after traverse right on 1st pitch. Grabbed peg after struggling to locate a decent handhold! Shame to rest on rope after completing crux clean. Probably a bit knackered psychologically by that point! Great route. The last pitch is tricky too!

P1 only. 2 rests. Abandoned route after seeing signs that peregrines were still nesting on P3. BMC sign indicated bird ban up to 1st July or until chicks had left nest. There were no signs of peregrines or twitchers so we guessed they had left (& BMC database just stated a ban up to 30-Jun). About 2/3 of the way up pitch 1 some peregrines started circling some distance above (the nest is halfway up pitch 3), so we decided to ab off. Will be back when they have gone. If the rest of the pitches are as good as P1, this is a great route.

P1 & 3 A foothold snapped whilst pulling on 2 sloping sidepulls on P1. I think J was just as startled as I was...! Plenty of feathers and bird shit from P2 onwards.
