Much gardening. The route is now pristine! Get on it!
Chubbard - AltLd rpt - 05/Oct/13 with Paz

Didn't like the climb at all really and definitely not worth 3*'s at best worth 1 maybe... all pitches were wet and nasty so we bugged out onto the last pitch of castle's as the rest of the route hadn't been worth it anyway.
j4star - AltLd - 18/Nov/12

Pulled on quickdraw seconding up damp crux on p1. Rested on p4. Bit annoyed for giving in & resting, but had a really good day out. Cha did well to lead p1 clean.

Hmmm,P1: seconded, fell off on the obvious 5c section in the middle. P2: Led, good fun. P3: Good fun, had a bit of a nightmare in the grass at the top. P4: Saw a Sea King in the gorge flying aroung, very cool, messed around going onto the sport route next to it for the top becuase the top of the route was wet... may have pulled on a quickdraw. :) Great route, great fun. Want to do it again when its not bloody freezing :)

Led P2 and P4. Fantastic route. P3 and 4 are brilliant. I'm sticking my neck out and even saying better than Coronation Street.

Paul Robertson - AltLd O/S - 11/Mar/11 with Guy Percival

Led pitches 2 and 4. A bit over hyped in the guide. Probably worth just a star.

With Gordon. Lead pitches 1 and 3. Brilliant route, the highlight being the finger traverse on pitch 3.
