I led p1 which was pretty easy for the grade and well protected, unlike p2 which Paul led - this was hard for the grade and poorly protected. Mid-grade E2 IMO.

P2 only. Shame the rock is so dodgy and gear basically non-existent because the moves are 3 star. Very enjoyable on second, unlikely to be fun leading! ;) Bit of a wierd one to grade, soft E2 5b due to rock/gear ?

Pitch 1 is pleasant but rambling. I pulled a block off P2 when I tried this back in 1993. This time I read the guidebook and went around the bulge (almost into Sabre Cut) rather than over the bulge - you can still see the hole where the block came from! After that the climbing up the arĂȘte is enjoyable.

Good climbing but a bit too serious for the grade. At least a full grade harder than Cemetery Gates.

Only the first pitch to get to foil. Was feeling tiered. First pitch is very good. Will come back to lead top pitch

Led p1. Thought p2 felt very hard for E1. Even 2nding one move felt harder than anything on 4000 at Stoney Middleton (Ff6c): hard for 5b, strenuous and not well protected so E1 seems harsh.

A good route but it's a dangerous sandbag at E1. P2 has hard 5b moves to get to the ledge and then again to get off the ledge and in both cases the gear is too low down to prevent a nasty fall onto a ledge. A serious E2 for sure. Led P2.

Led P2. Good climbing, exposed towards the end. Second pitch enjoyable but sparse gear; easy climbing but 'horn' things wobbly & didn't inspire confidence. RP's and offsets beneficial here (wish I'd had some!) to supplement the 'normal' gear which is mostly in suspect rock.

Led 1st pitch, steady and gear ok but looks sparse from below. Second pitch steep, poorly protected and some suspect rock. Not easy with numb hands!

Led P1. Tom felt that P2 was a bit necky so finished up Dives/Better Things.

Superb. Great climbing and just about enough gear but one move that falling off is not an option.

Misread the guidebook and thought I was on Sabre Cut, lead with a long break near the top of the overhang/gorse bush!

Fell off pitch 2 when a hold the size of a small asteroid came off. As I came to a halt upside down at the end of the rope I watched the offending item hit the hillside below in a big cloud of dust.

2,L. Rested on the top pitch. I seem to remember we did it at 06:00 because the midges under the bolder where we were sleeping were so bad.

with Alan Bennett
Gordon Stainforth 19/Jun/83 AltLd O/S

I remember the last pitch being extremely good. Technical, tough 5b weaving through initial small overlaps, then a tremendous 'pat on the back' final knife-edge arete in the evening sun. Massively exposed and covered with little incut holds. Memory from 32 yrs ago.

P1 Dives Direct Start. Backed off top wall on P2 as gear was very sparse - HVS 5a in those days. Finished up Better things.
