what a cracking route,the only thing that let it down was the sheer amount of dust that settled on it!well thats aside from the fact that i got really pumped trying to work out the crux and fell off down climbing that part for a rest.should go clean next time!

Would say this was in a very dangerous state currently. 1.7m block below the top bolt is going to depart very very soon (resting on a small shattered block, hanging out of position, top of big block just touching rock above) - and it will land on the belayer. Evidence of 30cm blocks having come off in the last 24hrs now scattered around the belay zone. Took a big whipper when a hold broke whilst clipping. Otherwise great route!

Wow, what an inredible route!Yes it's a bit suspet in places but the climbing is just awesome, lots of clips so it is very safe and just enough rests to re-charge wilting arms. The crux is a bit blind but stay with it! Althouh it was onsight and no beta there were quite a few tick marks which only slightly spoiled the experience - bit didn't help at all on the crux. Best route of the year so far.

Lovely. Broke up in to two separate pitches. First pitch felt lush, leading the second somewhat harder, stringing both together would be a solid but not crimpy 7a. Rusty maillon at the top is looking a bit sorry and appears to have been backed up by the next clip down.

1st half is a great romp on big holds & big moves. 2nd half delivers the very well-bolted crux section with positive holds once you find them. Great climbing and good rock throughout.

Got well past the lower off before resting but by then my arms were on fire and I ended up having to hang on three or four bolts through the crux sequence! Absolutely brilliant route, would easily be one of the best sport climbs in the Peak if it was just climbed enough to clean it up, as it is a little bit dusty. Would reccomend this route to anyone, but do heed the warning and use a 60m+ rope (with a knot tied in the end!!!!) or you will be in for some hassle on the way down. Will definitely go back for more punishment soon.... Added an extra maillon to the midway lower off as the existing one looked a bit tired.

One minor slip up tainted what should have been a steady onsight!
