Good route, E1 5b and nice. Quite pumpy in the middle.
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/12

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.
samsimpson - Lead O/S - 19/May/10 with JNewbiggin

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!!
Cragrat Rich - Lead O/S - 07/May/10

enjoyable, but soft even at E1.
