22m. The wide left-hand crack (a stiff HVS 5a pitch) leads to the cave; poor belays, it is better to press-on. A very hard move through the notch in the overhang (good gear but awkward to place - especially for the short) accesses the easier upper wall.
Only attempted the initial crack up to the cave. thought this was very tough for HVS 5a. Plenty of gear placements but strenuous and not easy to rest. But also I am not good at climbing cracks!
a wierd move off some dubious sand / mud holds.
Had no intention of attempting P2, but didn't like the ab option either so 'escaped' up Piccadilly Circus.
Did the first pitch combined with Piccadilly Circus, which seemed the most logical E2 pitch. The crack starts well but ends revoltingly in a load of chossy sandy stuff. Not very nice. There is no belay. I dread to think what the overhang is like.
