P2, quite hard move over the bulge but otherwise very enjoyable Climbing. Dave did P1 that had some interesting moves that were not that obvious.

Constantly interesting and varied climbing. Led P1, where I found the crux to be a precarious couple of moves left to a beckoning jug in a steep position. The 'bulge' of P2 is also a steep - feeling piece of climbing.

Excuse for this is that I couldn't commit to the move up and left leaving the left slanting gangway. Bit of an odd route really, not sure i went the right way at the start as i went above the large block before traversing left onto the gangway.
