Did 150m of moving together first then a pitch of VD then I lead s crack Scott did Y crack then alternate after that. Awesome route.
Tom.Priestley - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/15 with Scott Quinn

Lead the s crack , craig the y and layback, great route, never too strenuous so can just enjoy the positions, class. I finished in 1 60m pitch, going straight up the crack at the final belay finishing up the slab

A great mountain day out, 350+m of quality granite with 3 interesting pitches of VS climbing, S crack, Y crack & Layback crack are great pitches but for me the real crux came in the three chinmey's section. I lead initial slabs, S & layback. Lee led the Y crack. All other pitches swinging leads. Camp to camp 10 hrs, route up & down 5 1/2, done in 11 pitches (and just made it in time back to the ferry)

Raining for the first 3 pitches up to the base of the s-crack (120m from base of slabs, not 52m as suggested by Latter book) s-crack wet, slimy and hard. Y-crack and layback crack both good fun. had to run down to camp (25mins!) to catch the last ferry off. legs not working today.

First outing for the new ropes, rather dismal weather. Craig led the whole thing. Clean except a fall at the crux

Led the 'S' and the 'Y' out of the three technical pitches. Excellent route but lacks consistency, feels very much like a big V Diff day out with a few technical harder pitches. Did find the 'Y' short and steep and felt about 5a but with excellent protection.
Neil Pacey - AltLd O/S - 25/May/13 with Tanya Savage

neil led s and y cracks. i failed on top move of y crack, got hauled ignominiously over the top. i led layback pitch but went wrong - did leftmost layback all the way up. quite exciting. loved the pinnacle but rope drag awful.
Tanya Savage - AltLd - 25/May/13 with Neil Pacey

Hidden - Lead O/S - 17/May/13

Lead S crack and layback which I immensely enjoyed. So much friction you just need to trust your feet. Dogged my way up Y crack where apparently I resembled a cow walking up some stairs backwards...
skirton - AltLd - 27/Apr/13 with Karolina Mysiak, Donald Slater

A grand day out. Pleased to have led the Y-crack pitch. Thought the layback crack was well scary! Didn't do the upper pinnacle.

A fantastic route. Led the Y-crack and Layback crack, both stoaters and steady climbing. Apart from the S-crack we soloed all the other pitches to save time and escape from the biting wind that greeted us after the Y-crack! Topped out to a lovely sunset and a great view of the Paps of Jura. What a crag!

Simply brilliant. I think we went a bit off route getting to the base of the S crack, as that final pitch felt a lot harder and more sustained than the S or Y cracks. Felt very scared on the exposed traverse near the top but enjoyed every second of it.

Mike-W-99 - AltLd - 09/Apr/11 with Fiona

A lovely route spoiled by the truly evil Y-crack! If you can jam it will be fine. If you can't you're in for a fight. Led 1, 3, 5 (placed the gear and down climbed to send Mike up the Y-crack - I can't jam!), layback crack, 9. Resorted to hauling on the rope to get up the Y-crack, I'm too wee to reach the cat ears and just couldn't work out how to get up any other way. Continued to the top of Rosa Pinacle leading even pitches.
Fiona Reid - AltLd - 09/Apr/11 with Mike

Had a very messy moment at the Y-crack with feet slipping. Super-solid hand-jams saved the clean ascent. Followed guidebook recommendation and did the Rosetta Stone afterwards which had a bit disappointing rock quality. Sort of crumble for desert.

Started too far to the left which made the first pitch quite tricky with tons of rope drag. Joint a few pitched together did in 5 pitches without the pinnacle finish.
jamestheyip - AltLd O/S - 23/May/10 with Peter

awesome climb. Lead the pitch just before the layback crack and the layback crack itself. I found the layback crack very commiting on the lead. The overhanging Y-crack was my only fall, but I got after finding the jug. Again can't stress how awesome a climb it was
THardSevere - 2nd dog - 22/May/10 with andrew hutchins, robert taylor

Absolutely awesome! Lead Y-crack and layback crack. Thought crux was very hard. Layback crack a stunning pitch.

Batt - AltLd O/S - 30/May/09 with James Hoyes

Hoyes - AltLd O/S - 30/May/09 with Rachel B

Alternate leads, lead the S crack. And seconded the inverted Y crack with a heavy Rucksack. Thought it should be 4c and not 5a as it is in the new guide. Some people thnk the Y crack is nearly 5B! I suppose if you don't know how to jam it could be difficult, maybe 5a but not 5b. I've lead harder VS 4c climbs (Samarkand).
Simon Holden (LCandCC) - AltLd O/S - 02/May/09 with Murray & Pete Nugent

Murray led the initial pitches. Simon led the "S" crack and I led the "Y" crack & the layback pitch. The latter was the best section in my view. We ran into a lot of traffic where the route joins Sou'wester Slabs and avoided the last pitches by moving right under a big roof and then climbing easy rock on the right of the ridge. An excellent day out!

Not my best climb, but excellent route all the same. Flashed the 'S' crack, but peeled off the 'Y' crack after 5 attempts. Landed on one of my ropes luckily, as Davina was busy enjoying the view down Glen Rosa; no idea I'd come off... The traverse out on to the wall after the 'uncomfortable corner' is certainly interesting...
