A right-to-left diagonal line with plenty of interesting climbing. Polished in places, though that doesn't detract too much.
1) 4b, 30m. From a stumpy pedestal (scratched name) move up past a tree and take a diagonal line left across slabs to a steep groove. Climb this to a ledge and tree belay.
2) 4a, 16m. Continue across and left following the series of cracks and corners to a steep final crack (Lobo) to finish.

Thought the second pitch was harder then the first.

My first HS (and multi-pitch) lead. The top pitch is lovely, although the wide crack at the top is a little intimidating at first - for someone who hadn't lead anything more than a VDiff before ;-)

Also thought the second pitch was harder than the first. IMO it warrants HS 4b, 4b.

I'd swap the pitch grades around, first was 4a with spaced protection in places and not very good climbing, second a good 4b and much better.
