Dan Led P1, i did P2. Found P2 slightly harder than P1 which was easy. Nice route well worth doing.

dDry weather. Some wet areas on route and a fair bit of vegetation to climb past on both pitches. a Great pumpy route though

great route for when its been rainy (or any time!) pitch 1 is the harder and pumpier pitch despite being shorter but your on great holds and its fine if you bridge. pitch 2 is just superb traversing using a juggey hand rail and plenty of footholds to get the weight off your arms. didnt notice any 4c move on this pitch and it was not pumpy as there was so much for your feet. a great route only slightly let down because of the 'samey' feel. ade p1 me p2

seeping dampness and vegetation added to the interest, good route
spacey - AltLd O/S - 23/Sep/11 with paul evans

Led pitch 1, great hand holds, airy move around the arÍte, a cool little route where plenty of cams will be helpful.
Noodles - AltLd O/S - 22/Sep/11 with Andy Mcque

Excellent route, great holds throughout but got pumped on the crux trying to arrange bomber gear for my second (had a wee rest!). Doesn't look like it gets much traffic which is a shame because its mega!

really enjoyable traverse, big jugs!
Bill Lawrence - Solo O/S - 23/Jul/11 with alex mason

The perfect solo. I dont think any handhold is not an incut jug. Great fun.

Led pitch 2. Interesting, different climb. Good handhold all along the route, delicate feet needed. Hanging belay at stance, watch out for brambles!
