Did it again today with Margaret Q. First pitch a bit thin higher up. The overlap is climbed by a corner, with a committing blind move left. Did the corner above this time, which would be much better if loose rock removed. The last moves were horrible, 4b is about right technically, but it scarier than most 4bs.

Did Dawson's Diedre to the corner, then up onto the slab. That move is not hard, but probably 4b is right, although its well protected. Slab above is not nice to lead. Maybe the corner on the left would be better if cleaned out a bit.

I meant at the end of pitch 1 to belay below the final CORNER (and not chimney) of "Dawsons Diedre"

The first pitch is excellent and the turning of the overhang on pitch two is also excellent. The rock on the final slab is not!. You could obviously finish up Dawsons Diedre instead and so reduce the quantity of gravel you send seawards
