Bailed after the second pitch as we were not having fun damp thruching. The route turned out to be not anything like as good as the guide made it out to be. I like chimneys and cracks but even I found it very brutal, so can't imagine what Matt thought! It's a shame because it's such a cool feature but the climbing just didn't seem to quite match. Maybe it was just conditions.

Led P1 and P3. If you can jam, P1 is pleasant. P2 is difficult and not very pleasant. P3 is almost worth doing for the arête at the top. Top tip: bring hexes as well as medium and large cams.

Can't say I loved the climb, it is in a great position but it all feels a bit of a grovel up a dirty crack. Much better routes on th ecrag.

Damp, green crack made for interesting climbing - bridging, back and footing and thin face climbing were all preferable to the slimy jamming on offer.

Conan - AltLd O/S - 25/May/09 with Shaw Brown
Great test of traditional climbing techniques, felt a little naughty using cams in places...!
1st pitch laybacking and jams.
2nd pitch thrutchy back & footing.
3rd pitch bold bridging then more back & foot work before moving up a "slab" past grassy ledges.
66m of pure fun!!
