A good line though with a finish that is a bit of a spoiler.
1) 5b, 18m. Climb a thin crack past the edge of an overlap then the groove to a stance below the left edge of the roof.
2) 4c, 30m. Continue up the chimney and the floral groove above direct to the top.


Not sure about your pitch lengths - I did it comfortably in one pitch on 50m ropes

These pitch lengths are definitely wrong. I was also to do it in one, even though one of my ropes is shorter than 50m. Some quite good technical moves on pitch 1 but pitch 2 suffers from its fair share of loose rock and vegetation
