Comfortable climbing, well protected and positive features. Low end E1 at a push...

Felt like steady E1 5b. Rock and gear seemed better than the guidebook would suggest.

Warmed up on this, get's E1 5b in over the moors which seems about right. Plenty of gear with a couple of nice moves.

Made it through the crux and it was completely dark so I couldnt see the footholds retreated and abbed for the gear. - I'll be back!!

Good route, E1 5b and nice. Quite pumpy in the middle.

E1 5b rockfx... Was a challenge for me on the 2nd but one that i did eventually with a few grunts and a few falls. Was fun!

My first E1 onsite lead. Found it realtively easy after spending a day at HVS in Llanberris pass. Gear OK providing you've got the right pieces!

Think rockfax guide is correct at E1, very very soft e2 5c.

Cragrat Rich 07/May/10 Lead O/S

One really nice section but not too much quality surrounding this. The first Western Grit says soft-touch E2, new one says soft-touch E1?? So we know it's soft-touch at least!!

Hidden 07/May/10 Lead O/S

enjoyable, but soft even at E1.
