Pitch 2. 5a in new guide. Excellent and well protected.

Fiona Reid 17/Jun/17 AltLd O/S

Gets 5a in new guide and pitch 2 definitely warrants it. Led pitch 1, felt more like 4b than 4a. Both pitches are great. Pitch 2 is pretty full on for VS, plenty gear but definitely 5a.

John started leading first pitch and decided it would be easier to do it all in one, not sure why the guide suggests 2. Really nice route with beautiful layback crux near the top that's definitely harder than 4c. Exposure is brilliant!

did as a single pitch - probably a better climb because of it. Defintely 5a move half way up the second pitch, so if you can't do 5a in an exposed location you will be in trouble.

I must say I have some sympathy for those who say this should be HVS 5a. The crux move on pitch two is hard and committing and I didn't think there was good gear at that point. But I suppose something has to be the hardest VS in the area....

Good route in a good location. I finished direct from the groove, I'm not sure if I should have gone right at the very top but finishing direct felt about right for grade (VS+ in the latest FRCC guide) though the gear was not great at this section. Misty and slightly damp.
