Fantastic climb! Crux was some nice little moves! Exposure was awesome almost all the way up! Really enjoyed the small traverse to the left from the second belay! Well worth the big walk in!!!

Climbed by chance. Set off to do Shibboleth but started too far left. Did in three pitches. Good route though!
jamestheyip - AltLd O/S - 03/Jul/11 with Peter

Great sociable day. Pitch 2 and 4 are excellent. **** all the way!
Liam Ingram - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/11 with Robyn Tuerena, Becky Stedham, Tom HS

Awesome climb. Seconded it clean despite the big rucksack. Cool positions but it would have felt pretty bold to lead I reckon. Especially pitch 3. I lead the initial scramble but I won't claim the Alt lead.

I led pitches 2,3,5. All excellent. Final scramble (two roped pitches) and descent was a bit of an epic.
gjd - AltLd O/S - 12/Jun/10 with Mapleleaf

Got lost after 3rd pitch, ended up popping out onto the ridge after following the guide book description for 3rd pitch of left, left, left. Should have gone right, right, right!

dj_brigham05 - AltLd O/S - 12/Sep/09 with Rich Clarke, Pete Abernethy

Epic, got of route pitch2, pitch 4 is bold as, and hard to find a decent path we had to do 2extra piches and then about an hour of scrammbling on scre in the dark just to the ridge! pitch 5 is prob worth all the hasslte!
pete87abs - AltLd O/S - 12/Sep/09 with Richard Clarke, Dave Brigham

a bold pitch 4 leads to an increadable pitch 5. awesome!

jonnie3430 - Lead O/S - 29/Jun/09 with Cora

Led pitches 2 and 4 (the fantastic flake pitch). A route well worthy of 4 stars, and only slightly damp on the first two pitches...
Ken Applegate - AltLd O/S - 26/Jun/09 with Alex Wheldon

Vicki M - AltLd - 05/Jun/09 with Doug and Lawrie

Lawrie Brand - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/09 with Vicky Mayes, Dougie Harvey

Excellent route. Ran the first 2 pitches together, and possibly went the wrong way on the last pitch...
dougs1232 - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/09 with Vicki Mayes, Lawrie Brand

simon_D - AltLd O/S - 01/Jun/09 with Euan C

Almost 100% dry. Fantastic route: steep, awkward first 25m followed by two fabulous airy, varied 30m pitches on perfect rock. Why only two stars?

What a day. Intimidating, sometimes runout and exciting.

Best HVS mountain route I've done so far.
Fultonius - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/08 with Mal Meech

adw07 - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/08 with Andy Main

Awesome climbing, nothing to hard but loads of intimidation. The flake pitch has to be one of the best rock features I've climbed, it just kept coming. Right up there with centurion as the best mountain route so far.
andymoin - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/08 with Warren

1st multipitch trad - absolutely amazing!!!!! closing my eyes i see that flake...
hubereini - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/08 with neil

What an amazing route!!!! got a bit lost on top pitch and ended up on the ramp of shibboleth, this made for an even more exciting finish. everyone must do this route!

Ed Babs - AltLd O/S - 14/May/08 with Lee Mercer

Managed to get off-route on both the first AND the second pitches! However, lead the exposed section of the fourth pitch to the flake OK, and enjoyed the flake enormously - great pitch.
clipskipper - AltLd O/S - 14/May/08 with Ed Babington

Hard first corner pitch very sustained and technical, moving round the corner is good and easy then the undercut flake is deffinately the highlight. Big cams or hex's usefull.

Who on earth could give this only 2 stars? And for that matter, the currently guidebooks suggest it has 3 5a pitches, so HVS 4c???

This is, quite simply one of the best routes that I have ever done! Wild exposure and an exciting and slightly intimidating atmosphere throughout.
