Think I did this climb! I went up the groove / crack / slim corner line which starts above the void. I didn't have the guide book with me. Was very pleasent but with very sparce gear. Felt about Vdiff.

Nice route - thinner on gear that initially looks - things are an odd shape - take lots of very small wires

daviesp2 - Lead - 27/Jun/12 with David Adamson

Ment to lead this, but managed to climb between this route and Pulpit route. Nice exposed start then followed a nice crack. Route not in guidebook so named the route myself. Called it the Money shot! Pissed with rain half way up, was a real good adventure. Polly followed up on extremely wet rock. CONGRATULATIONS!
rustyfishhook - Lead O/S - 26/Jun/12

Climbed this route further to the right this time as there seemed to be more gear there and my second wanted to lead it after seconding.

Actually, this was a first ascent of a new route I'd call "Walk in the park" if I could be bothered to write it up. It was west of Fallen Block Climb starting up an obvious vertical crack. Was gonna go up Isis but waves were washing over ledge so this was safest exit.

Not sure i would agree with the guidebook description of good protection. I had about a 7m section with no pro. It was easy climbing over this section but a little unnerving.

James first ever climb outside, and third ever session of rock climbing. Had Neil C there as a demo man which was useful. Climbed the route, trailing a second full rope which was already tied onto James. Brought him up second as a top rope, and Neil Belayed me, and cleaned the route. Decent climb, although didn't feel too at home on the rock!
