first and second pitch

Update as of Aug 2011 on bolted stations.

There is a shiny two bolt station at the bottom

Pitch 1 is 30m to a bolted station on a large ledge to the right. I did not see any ledge with a boulder.

Pitch 2 is 40m to a bolted station on a large ledge to the right.

Instead of following the p3 and p4 directions in this route description we continued up the corner (which turns into a low angle chimney and easy runout face) and belayed in a sheltered ledge.

Pitch 5 anchor is now two shiny bolts and one rusty one.

We noticed two new looking protection bolts on the first "pitch" of scrambly low-fifth stuff above the medieval alleyway chimney.
