Climbed as a three. Used the walk around (fixed rope showing signs of wear) and the 5+ finish. Really lovely route on great rock all the way (Three Stars for sure); an excellent job on the equipping front too. I led last pitch.

Cracking day out, what a great route. Climbed again dec 13 during our next visit. On both occasions it was really hot!

Lead Pitches 1,3 & 6. Ralph lead 2,4 & 5 as it was the 6a+. Beautiful climb. Took four hours with a bit of faff on my behalf between pitches 3 & 4. When the logbook says exposed, they meant it!

inspired route finding up the cliff finding a line through the steepness. expect rope drag at the top !
lithos - Lead - 21/Apr/12 with Pete Bradshaw, julie

Utterly brilliant, the highlight of the week. Carmen led pitches 1, 3, and 6, I led 2 and 4. We took the walking version of 5, but the rest was so continually good that this barely detracted from the overall experience.

Led 1,2 & 4 inc. cave pitch - wow! Concentration on said pitch wasn't aided by the boatload of bikini-clad Dutch girls floating around below!
stouffer - AltLd - 14/Sep/11

Fab climb, did P1,3,6, loads of rope drag on 6! On 3 use the tat - it's been placed where a bolt would be 'nice'. R did the 6a+ pitch for us all!

Excellent route. Nice approach down a protected gully and good sustained climbing, more balancy than steep. The cave stance and exit are great.

RockFax supplement has Winter edition wrongly described. That is the orange chimney/groove.

Fantastic route on great rock. Awesome cave position and great climb out onto face. Views and setting made it one of the best climbs around
