Lead as one long pitch. Jake tried first but found it hard and so did some sketchy down climbing, romoving the gear. Then I had a go and managed to get up after a bit of a battle in very hot conditions. Some of the holds are loose but a good route overall.

Phil West 26/Apr/11 AltLd O/S

I led the second (top) pitch. At least I think we were on the right route! We finished right at the top of Shepherd's Gully (shared final holds) which matches the guidebook description perfectly but not the topo on p335 (FRCC Select 2003).
