P-2 in Strans Gill Pot is called Hope (Pitch) – so over to you, ChrisB.

The first three pitches of SGP are called Faith, Hope and Charity – maybe because you need faith in your ability to get back up P-1, you need hope for P-2, and – according to the bible – 'the greatest of these three (faith, hope and charity) is charity' P-3 being a big pitch in a large rift.
