Absolutely superb and it felt as hard as lots of E1s. Awesome 5a move after 5a move. Some ok rests but pretty pumpy! Awesome! Why only 86 ascents on UKC? Go to Hen Cloud people!

Fantastic route. Found it a big challenge. Had initial trouble getting onto the starting block which I solved by bridging across the corner. Got through the roof no problem; lovely moves, then across to the delicate bold traverse to the corner. Found the corner tough partly due to the exposure but gear is all solid and there's a good rest at half way. Found the upper part quite hard and the top out a proper bugger. Well worth the struggle :)

Made the delicate traverse into the crack but couldn't commit to the sustained loking corner carck. Pissed.

Absolutely fantastic! Had to rest twice on upper section, which was a shame, but can't say enough about the route. Tough start requiring some VERY wide bridging, then lean out under the roof and a mantle to gain the bottom right tip of the main face. The traverse is easy if you find the right holds (undercut), but moves away from uninspiring gear until the sanctuary of the corner. Then great tough jamming/laybacking with just enough for feet (and hands) all the way up. A really fantastic route.

A proper grit route with a bit of everything. Accidentally did a direct start way to the left of the normal start, which involved a high rockover off jams - 5b? The last move had me stumped for a while, resorted to bridging round and over the elephant's arse. Quality!

Early in my jamming apprenticeship. Bit spooked after falling onto a shitty hex at the bottom of the groove. Lucky I didn't get any higher because I didn't have any gear. Horribly hungover, after trying to drink a pint of everything on draft in the Rock the evening before.

Brilliant climbing up the groove, pumpy but not quite as hard as I'd expected (a lot easier than BLH). The slab is a bit rubbish but the route is well worth 3*.

Perhaps stepped up outside my upper limit. Fought every last inch of the crack. Just made it to the belay, well worth doing, glad I completed it. Stumbled upon at the right point of my climbing, and on a good day. Magnificent in every sense.
