Led all 7 pitches. Awesome route. First route of trip nd thought I was on Poeme a Lou until after the traverse.

Thought we were on Poème à Lou but couldn't find the fixed rope!

Great route, however I really struggled at this grade....... Fantastic rock, great views and a short walk in!
Rob Royle - 2nd - 08/Aug/15 with Seb (Mountain Guide)

This one suprised both of us, its really good! Great rock (some pretty funky holds!) and some great pitches, not that hard either, the crux pitches are probably more like 6b than 6c

Led odds. Shame about the scrappy ledges on the last pitch.

Aye, fun day. Pretty cruisy.
Fultonius - AltLd O/S - 25/Jul/14 with Searler

Led 1,3 5. Fell off 5 as got quite pumped. Seconded and still made a mess of the 6c roof. All in all a superb day out: amazing rock, sustained, lots of it.
DigitalSteak - AltLd - 25/Jun/14

We found this rather easier than Poeme a Lou which in itself was not particularly hard given the 6c grades attached to the topos...nevertheless, this was another good voyage up to the ski lift on generally sound rock. No real crux on any pitch, and plenty of nice run-outs on easy, juggy stuff. Nice mini layback coda to the final small headwall. I would give this route a 6b/5c obl rating.

led 3 pitches including second 6c overhang. 6c traverse pitch a bit intimidating if you're not used to that much exposure!Felt a bit soft for the grade.

alright sport climb better than poeme a lou. Lead Traverse under roof pitch which i found awkward but generous for 6c. James lead other 6c pitch which is just one move and quite easy for us children of the climbing wall generation.
Ewan Russell - AltLd O/S - 16/Jul/12 with james wilson

Wils - AltLd O/S - 16/Jul/12 with Ewan Russell

Led the two 6c pitches which are probably soft for the grade. Great climbing from bottom to top.
