Very good route, 4b is all in the first pitch. The latter pitches all have very run out sections of slab climbing. Belays on everything other than the first pitch are relatively tricky. Take hexes and several cams around size 0-3 and you should be able to tame the route a bit. Definitely more than we bargained for but a fantastic experience! spenser - Lead O/S - 24/Jun/14 with Jon Cheetham
Climbed in 5 pitches. I led p2 and p4

Andy lead first pitch. Surprising how little protection is on the upper slabs.

Great day out, 2nd pitch onwards is easy climbing but with no gear, nice little adventure

Me P1 & P3. Steve P2 & P4. fist pitch good traverse (as it was dry - would be v serious in wet) then good gear in greasy crack climbed on jams. P2 & P3 hardly any gear at all on the slabs but mostly easy angle.

Very bad route.
We just climb it in Cloggy, I prefere Gogarth, witch is a very good cliff.

Very bad route. We disliked. It's not difficult but never beautiful.

Excellent. First pitch has one or two 4b moves, but after that its several pitches of delightful clean slab climbing!! Protection is tricky in places, need some micronuts lower down, but is a bit better above & the moves are easy. We belayed just above end of 2nd pitch in the gully & didn't find the belay for pitch 3 so belayed at the shattered spike/block/mini arete at the top of the gully. Think this was probably a little off route, missed out what looked like lovely clean climbing up the slabs on the left, if only for a few moves before the easy scramble over heather and loose rock. Done in 4 pitches with 60m doubles.

This route is great if you like 25 metre run outs, poor belays on sloping grassy ledges and massess of loose, head sized rocks - no mention of this in the ground up guide, it describes the route as "delightful"!

poor route... slid 20m head first down the fourth pitch (foot slipped in the wet) onto the only cam I took with me.

A disappointing route, not worth 3 stars. First pitch is solid VS 4c. The rest is easy but with huge runouts and an easy gully a step away most of the time. Last pitch loose and unpleasant.

Lead P2+4 (we ran 5 pitches into 4). First Cloggy experience and i imagine typical of most people's - i.e. difficult route finding! Easy climbing but VERY run out.
