[Climbers enjoying the evening Sunshine at Anstey's, 3 kb]60m, 2 pitches. ***PLEASE TAKE CARE WITH LOOSE ROCK - anything dislodged from here tends to funnel toward the lower path to Ferocity wall*** Pitch 1 (5) climbs the slab to the left of St Gregory. A pleasant beginners climb in its own right. Pitch 2 (6a) Has plenty of bolts but is rather more exciting prospect with a bit of a trad feel and some loose rock. Cross the collapsing debris behind the belay and climb up onto the arete. At its top traverse left with crux moves after the bolt which has a rope extension. Finally exit at a white wall and belay on the fence behind.

Chawn p1. Led p2. Nicely exposed and not too as loose as expected - I only broke off one foot hold!
francois - AltLd O/S - 06/Jul/13 with Chawn

Made a navigational faux pas and traversed right at the top, ended up running it out on a mixture of grass and loose rock and had to have a rope lobbed down to finish. Esoteric fun at least!

First ever multi-pitch. Really enjoyed it but did have a slight moment after pulling a loose, fist sized chunk of rock out of the cliff right by the crux!

Found it difficult to get up the arete until I found a nice undercut. The traverse was difficult, but did it clean
skeight88 - 2nd - 13/May/12 with Richard

Rope extender VERY frayed (I'll try to replace on next visit). My 1st sports route! really enjoyed it. Had 1 rest on bolt.

robbie Warke - 2nd - 16/Mar/12

Took the Wrong Route (Didn't do traverse) - with serious runout over dirt on second pitch, need to come back and do it properly (might not be so scary if I take the bolted route!)

I led 2nd pitch - much more interesting than 1st pitch. Took a fall on the traverse when a hold broke off! Had to lower to slab, traverse back and re-climb.
