First pitch clean. Slipped once on top pitch down climbing back from crux. Got back on and just went for it. Move is easier than it looks. Silly fall. Fantastic route though. First time doing direct finish.

Lead both pitches. I thought pitch two was easier but I'm a smelly indoor climber who doesn't know how to hand-jam. Needless to say, pitch one enforced a lesson. Thumb to palm and a bit of torque, shoulder will dislocate before hand comes out. Oh, and big toe down, very solid! Pitch two was fun, not so jammy. Thanks fairhead

Dave lead P1, and I did P2 (direct). The direct finish is definitely the logical line. Nice moves.

P1 which went on and on, superb. Last route of an excellent 4 days. Just about pulled through without incident. Bit of a run out after crux with no more big cams. Fatigue was well set in and I was happy to reach a place of sanctuary. Another 3 star classic.

What a great route! The first pitch is the best jamming pitch I've ever done. Not too hard, plenty of gear if you want it and perfect jamming on clean rock. The occasional hardish move or sequence always leads to a good jam and footholds. Belayed on the obvious ledge at 30m. Ed didn't fancy the top pitch so I set off up the continuation crack and accidentally ended up doing the direct finish. The original route goes up a few metres to a horizontal crack, then scoots off to the side along this to gain an easier vertical crack system. I carried on direct as there was chalk ahead and the guide book suggested belaying after 45m (or an optional belay lower down, which is what I had done) and I had only done about 35 at this stage. The guide book is wrong, there's only one sensible belay at 30m and from there it's about 20m to the top! Anyway, I carried on and it got progressively harder, with a few 5c moves just before a juggy ledge. At this point I realised the error of my ways but it was too late! The last 10m or so were very pleasant. The direct finish made for a solid E2. The first pitch was a solid E1 but not E2 and though I obviously didn't do the original second pitch it looked fairly straightforward - so I suspect the original is pretty soft at E2. Anyway, a great route.

First pitch was fairly straightforward, lovely jamming,not especially sequency. Top pitch was considerably harder, rested a couple of times on tough sequences. Excellent route.
