Joby and Ed went as the first pair. Nick and I followed. Of the last three proper pitches, I led P2. We just about got away with it: the rain came in as we climbed these pitches. The final pitch was absolutely drenched when we got to it. Ed lowered a rope for Nick to clip into. I seconded as normal. Climbed it fine, despite the conditions.

Rest-day comedy - 4 people, 4 ropes, leaders rotating clockwise. Easy climbing, no rack needed. Great fun.

Just the one bolt protects the initial easy pitch, then one more for the second pitch, then a good double bolt belay marks the start of the proper climbing. Thankfully the bolts have been placed sparingly so this still feels like a serious adventure. 3rd time on this route for me and still feels wonderful. Mid 30's C so sun / heatstroke going on by the time we were finished.

Great exposure on the sharp last pitch. First two can be solo'd as one move wonders. Take care as it's a real sun trap with 0% cover after the caves.
andyevans - 2nd O/S - 09/Oct/14 with cdpuk
Solo P1,2, lead P3,4,5. Amazing scenery and exposure for the grade. No need for any trad gear any more. P1 and 2 have bolts where needed and the rest are fully bolted.

Pitched 3,4 and. 5 bolted. Found the traverse on 3 exposed, climb a little high after bolt three and had to down climb. Used a couple of pieces of trad to protect the top out! A great climb, but get there early to avoid any queues! Lead 1,3 and 5!

You really don't need a full rack as the first 2 pitches are really just a walk but the last pitch makes up for it! A gd day out! Although a few bolts where needed it still has the HVS feel :-) gd star to the year.
Felix Ottey - AltLd O/S - 01/Jan/14
Lots of shiny new bolts no need for a rack. A great situation for a climb.

Ash_Johnson - Lead - Nov/11
A fantastic adventure, exciting abseil, great views, sparse rusty gear, it has it all! Last two pitches are bolted where needed but a full rack was used, could not see any ENP's on the route, be careful not to tangle the ropes like I did around the rusty old ladders next to the abseil point! A must do.

Easy to run the two pitches after the traverse together in order to reach the cave before the crux. Seem to be some new bolts on the 5 section of this before reaching the prominent recess.
