Lead the crux pitch. Glad to find it OK after not doing much recently. Love jamming

Good route.The start was strenuous and a bit worrying until I found a jug. Handy jams made it manageable. The 5c move to the belay ledge which the guide book mentions was easy in comparison! Eve led P2, which was sustained but mostly ok, with jamming skills employed again. Couple of hard moves just before the sloping ledge though, didn't fancy the barndoorey layback so used something right of the crack instead. I finished off with the 5a pitch (pockets and more jamming, a bit goey at the start) and with 60m ropes was able to belay off a couple of spikes just below the top (above the exit pinnacle).

Lead p1 and p2. Fell off P1 after spending ages hanging around on the steep wall struggling to place gear and getting super pumped. It went fine second go - quite scary, with unobvious holds and gear. P2 was really good, sustained and with no easy moves. I got really pumped and nearly fell off just before the move getting onto the slab - hard.

A steep P1 but not too bad if you can hang the jams. P2 was sustained and technical: a good lead by Mike.

Fell off last moves at the top in the wide crack. Was amazed to have hung on for that long! Felt really hard and sustained, but absolutely brilliant.

lead 1 and 3. 1 was steep with some hard moves at the top. 3 was very pleseant. pitch two was fairly sustained although again with good gear/rests. one hard section to get onto ledge.. wish I could lay down the power sometimes!

Led 2nd pitch. Had an epic, chalk bag came undone and just managed to realise in time and reversed with it in my teeth. When i arrived at the top section the shake-out undercut was gopping and absorbed all my chalk, or what was left of it after the drop. ended up swerving right into the camel and reversing to the pinnacle. Led off from here and used the left hand easy option, which is no easier. Good route but feels escapable all the way.

Duncan Campbell 28/Feb/11 AltLd O/S

Epic 5 hour ascent...Led p1 and 3. P1 has a scary urgent pumpy section and is tricky to get into off the deck but ok if you take the time to plan it. Took the 5b option at the top of the pitch, why? Because I'm short and a juggy runout romp up a steep wall appeals to me more than a reachy, well protected thrutch. Mase had a bit of an epic on his pitch (see his log). Was knackered once I reached the bottom of the 3rd pitch and I'm not a crackmaster so was intimidated but just took it as it came and it went fine. An epic day out. I Fucking love trad climbing...
