What a route! Every pitch three stars, and they're all a little bit soft for the grade as well so no reason not to try. Every belay with rings so can retreat if needed. Led first 6b pitch, 6a pitch, second 6b+ pitch and the top 6c+ pitch. Pleased to do it clean seconding as well. Go to it!

Had to reverse from crux on top pitch to leave rucksack with Alice. It felt OK then and enjoyed watching Alice get up it carrying two sacks! Brilliant and memorable route.

Classic stuff! L1,6b: desperate start from cold. L2,6b: steeper and more sustained. L3,6a: does 6a come better than this? L4,6b+: descent into gully makes rope security well dodgy; hard-6c. L5,6b+ straightforward soft-6b. L6,6c+: adrenaline overdose, a fitting climax!

led pitches 3, 5 and 7.... slipped on the polished 5th pitch and lacked the juice to get the crux pitch clean.. v.intimidating going out of the cave! amazing day
dbrooks - AltLd dog - 05/Nov/14 with John
I led the initial chossy scramble, the second 6b layback, and the second 6b+. Skipped the first 6b+ pitch when James did the 5+ trad pitch by accident. Had to French-free the last hard move on the last 6c+ pitch due to melting arms. Awesome route, right at my limit.

Great day. Led P2, 4 and 6 all clean which I was pretty happy with. Slipped stupidly off some polish on 5 when we were off route (apparently!) anyways. Also struggled miserably on the top pitch as expected but thought it was amazing all the same. Bag and nervousness didnt help. Topped out to some of the guys and a picnic as well as a nice early finish to go for a beer. Pretty good!
Maddie - AltLd dog - 2014 with remus
Lead pitches 3,5 and 7. Climbed with Adam Looker. Greatest climb to date, pulling through the final moves were indescribable. A must-do! It definitely felt like the technical crux was on pitch 5 though, not to be underestimated! 10/10

andybirtwistle - Lead - 14/Feb/13 with Tim Dunsby
Awesome route! Did the 6b+ variation as we were both hanging come pitch 5. Definitely wasn't a clean ascent, knackered by the end of it. Finished with an ab off a bridge to get back to the car and a wash in the sea. The pitch after the pinnacle is polished and sloppy. Apart from that 3 stars!
Chris Perry - 2nd - 05/Jan/13 with Matt Rust
great route! finished up los miserables, lots of quality pitches, personal fave was after the pinnacle, steep territory with good holds, although some polish. a very hot day. definitely go back for the cave pitch.

The only thing that would make this better would be if the pitch off the top of the pinnacle was another steep jugfest instead of having that delicate polished slopey section...

pt1,3,5 and 7 and the wife 2,4 and 6. This is the first big route I have done and what an amazing experience. If anyone is looking for a bit of exposure of a sporting nature then look no further, a little over 5 hours for the ascent. Pt5 more like 6c but the rest felt about right!

Good route. Pretty friendly at the grade. Thought the crux move was on the supposed 6b+ pitch after the pinnacle/gully, which is more like 6c. Top pitch more like 6b+/6c
