I led pitch 1 - very poorly protected (6 placements in 37m, two of them adjacent) with no warning in the guidebook, could be a shock for a VDiff leader! Pete led pitch 2 to the terrace. C led the last pitch via the severe groove, good gear where needed.

Scary route lower down. Not so much in the way of gear placements compounded by going wrong by not going left of the holly tree, bit more comfortable after I realised the right way.

Hidden - AltLd - 02/Jun/12

Scary climb, not hard but very little gear, got 4 placements on 1st pitch. Huge runout in the middle,Belayed on a ledge on the right rather than the flake as i was leading both pitches, and would have struggled without a 60m rope. The finish was nice though and protectable.

A brilliant climb,only managed to get four runners in the first pitch ( 37 metres)Did not belay at the holly tree but lead as the description in the Meirionnydd guide. the first bit of gear did not happen until I had climbed about 12 metres. Finished up the corner one awkward move but well protected.

Led all pitches, ran P1 & 2 together. Very cool indeed but found P1 spooky, fairly spaced gear and a bit of route finding, felt lonely up there. V worthwhile.

Nick P1 then alternative. Great rock.
eldre070 - AltLd O/S - 22/Apr/11 with Nick Thomas

VD approach quite bold in its lower section with little gear. Fab climbing higher up and the severe section provided a superb finish

P1 was airy with little pro. P3 was best. Not a bad route, just not used enough.
