First pitch a bit green. Otherwise excellent. Low in the grade, probably HVS.

Lead both pitches at Fairhead meet. Had to wait on ledge below belay for 20 minutes for party in front to sort out ropes. Overhanging part on first pitch and layback on second pitch both excellent.

75m E1; seconded 1st pitch 5a, lead second 5a. Overhang on the 1st pitch was easier if you stayed out of the crack and grabbed handhold above. 2nd pitch was harder, definitely more tiring with what felt like a never ending crack. Found that my belay device had fallen off my harness so had to use Munter hitch for the last pitch. Luckily found it lying on the floor at the start of the climb.

Led the second pitch. Very nice sustained jamming. No way this is E1, just HVS. Awesome line and awesome belay position at the top.

P2. Might b the best E1 iv done. Top drawer climbing all the way. P2 was an awesome pitch that got harder as u went. Sustained and defo felt E1. Last climb of a 3 day stint and a fantastic sign off.

***Brilliant. Easier first pitch with an awkward bulge. Tricky second pitch, lots of stuffing feet in cracks.

First pitch a bit dirty, the crux is towards the end, well protected. Second pitch has lots of jams - hands, fists, a bit of fingers, need no.4 cam for the crux at the end of the pitch. Sean lead the first pitch, I did the second.

Flash as I was waiting for other team to finish. Take doubles for sizes 2 to 4 (C4s) otherwise be ready for runoutes.

Misha 18/Aug/13 AltLd O/S

First route at Fair Head - expected a Millstone type mauler but it proved to be a very pleasant and amenable mid-grade HVS. First pitch a bit dirty in places and has a few tricky sections requiring some traditional techniques! The top pitch is a perfect, clean jamming and bridging corner crack with plenty of rests if you need them. A few harder moves but on the whole not particularly sustained, just really enjoyable climbing with (large) gear on demand. Led P2 and 3 in one (it doesn't really make sense to belay on the sloping ledge 5m from the top given the finishing crack is all in the same line!).

Climbed P1 OS, but it started to rain during belaying Nina. Had to leave orange sling there. Boulder at 3/4 of the first pitch made me climb down about 3 times. Next time I'll take 4 and 5 with me.

Slipped trying to go direct at the top... got back and realised it was way easier to finish left... D'oh. Lovely route, high in grade!

Led pitches 2 and 3 run together. Felt very athletic and strenuous for HVS but maybe I'm just knackered after 5 days of climbing. Could have done with more than 1 each of sizes 3-6 dmm cams. Some sections felt very run out. Just had to throw a size 2 near the bottom of the last pitch and run to the top, just as it says in the guide!
