Took a rest on the overhanging section of the 2nd pitch. Otherwise clean.

Jon ran P1 and P2 together, P3 wasn't worth the walk off, so we abbed. Great route.

Pitiful effort again on this route! Fortunatly able to pass over to an in form Haydn. There are jugs and gear soon after pulling onto the rib but still quite bold and v.steep with pro well below feet. Good, bold top pitch as well.
DaveAtkinson - AltLd - 20/Jun/12 with Haydn Keith

bold in places but with good holds. good route, worth two stars in my opinion

Led pitch 3 (4c) pretty run out. Watch out for the big loose boulder on pitch 1 - notice in car park which we didn't see till we came back!

In 2 pitches, Nick led first two and me the final. Nick had all the fun on this one, strenuous moves through the crux on pitch 2.

Tony lead 1st pitch and I got half way up the 2nd, which was shared with an E2 route at 5b and was bloody hard and will have to be revisited with fresh arms and renewed ferocity.

steve_biczyk - 06/Jun/10 with Emma

Led the 5b pitch. For our first pitch Ben took us up the first pitch of Trierman Eliminate, 5a, by mistake. Which actually made for a great combination! We were back on track by the 2nd pitch. LOVED this climb!
Andy S - AltLd O/S - 05/Jun/10 with Ben

Did 1st pitch of triermain eliminate at 5a to get to ledge, then p2 & 3 of harlot - makes an more sustained climb - 5a, 5b, 4c

a fine climb. good gear for the crux. suffers a slight bit of seepage. a reasonably good hold is at the other side of the swing around the arete.
Franco Cookson OLD - AltLd O/S - 04/Nov/07 with David Warburton

A good climb, with great positions and a well protected Crux. The pull around the rib is gutsy but on good holds..
