P1 to cave/peg belay (quite bold with small gear at start) , Paul did P2&3 combined to excellent belay corner, Pete did the excellent traverse, then it all went a bit pete tong, don't think we went far enough left before coming back right, but who knows. Fun climbing confusing top pitches....

Great mountain route, dodgy walk in

Strung first 4 pitches into 2. I lead 3 but went off route at the base of 4. Traversed too far right along a grassy ledge then up dubious heather laden rock into a corner with small tree. Belayed from the tree and two blocks wedged into corner. Beware these blocks are loose, either the tree is holding the blocks in, or the blocks are holding the tree! Scrambled up left and off. Forgettable.

Loved the belay at the oak, like a little den. Some very suspect spikes on that arete after the first traverse: remember 'push don't pull'. Entire crag to ourselves.

Cold and windy and wet, Alt leads, cant even remember which ones I had, but they all seemed really short with not much decent climbing.

Persevered despite the rain shower at the top of pitch 3!

Good consolation after being repulsed from Gillercombe Buttress which was still soaking after the summers rain. It's possible to run pitches 2&3 and 5&6 together. Crux (p4) is hard but well protected.

In 4 pitches. C led 1+2 and 5, I led 3+4 and 6. A great route, only guidebook pitch 5 lacked interest, the rest was continuously fine. C took Black Wall direct on 2nd instead of traversing. Some of the rock looked suspicious but it all turned out to be sound, presumably the loose bits have all disappeared over the years.

A lovely venue for a sunny summer evening as it gets the sun until sunset. On first pitch don't be tempted into the groove. Quite exposed on arete on second pitch. Black Wall traverse requires commitment - its all there when you get out there (pitch 4) and gear as well. Look out for loose holds.
