An historic great line but I was doubting the **** rating as I thrutched up the slimy chimney on pitch 2. It redeemed itself on the superb 3rd pitch though. ***

In perfect condition, not a wet hold all route. The first 2 pitches are both brilliant and the 3rd is good. As good an e1 as I've ever done. Michael and me both thought each other had the quickdraws, so we didn't have any! Made do fine with 4 extenders and a few slings though.

Led P2. Excellent route. Plenty of porridge required for this one. Long steep walk-in, and steep sustained climbing.

Brilliant! Well worth the bush-wacking t takes to reach it. Lead 2nd pitch. Impressive lead from Andy on the very 'damp' first pitch, where the crux move is getting of the ground. The hanging chmney/groove which ends the second pitch was ruddy hard work, almost had me off (or rather out) twice. Thank god theres three cams stuck in the final 6 foot of the thing :)
lrandall - AltLd O/S - 04/Sep/10 with Mandy

wet and sustained, the chimney was slimey and eats cams, the extension pitches above were loose and dirty and we finshed just as it was getting dark but a thouroughly enjoyable mountain experience.
dougs1232 - AltLd O/S - 22/May/10 with Vicki Mayes, Lawrie Brand

Another big day out with the mayes/harvey/brand combo. Climb was pretty wet where it counted, which made it feel tough..Led p.1&3, stunning line and sustained climbing that never lets up, total classic

Excellent. I think the middle pitch is hardest. Route finding for the walk in isn't easy

Hard first move. Tiring chimney on the second pitch. Brilliant climbing through all 3 pitches. Classic.

Ed Babs - AltLd O/S - 16/May/08 with Roy Thomas, Lee Mercer

Three good pitches, with different characters. Delicate steps, laybacks and hard chimney climbing. Finished in the rain which turned out to be just too much for the grip on my shoes. Worth the stars

Found the first pitch ok but the second chimney desperate! Led the 3rd. A great classic and hard for the grade.
