Verified:No
Start:Usually started by climbing The Confession as the first pitch. Belay on the ring-bolts at the top of pitch 1 of Auto Da Fe.
Description:Two interestin pitches that used to be thought very bold. But times change. Apparently gear can be found on the first pitch and Keith Egerton proved that even hexentrics in the horizontal breaks on the second pitch were adequate for 10 metre falls. The second pitch has also cleaned up enormously over the years.
Pitch 1:25m 18 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 18)
