Stayed too high at the end of the traverse and had to have a rope lowered down as the way I went was steep, blank and very hard. Good, 'thrilling' climb up to that point. I think it should be 5a for the initial moves on the traverse.

Should be HVS 5a. Crux must have shed a hold as my mate (led it) and I thought the moves were harder than any on Cool for Cats. Decent route though.

Nice climbing once it had dried off. Bold but easy (though slightly greasy) climbing to start and then a well-protected crux. Definitely 5a rather than 4c on the first pitch.

Chickend out of the first bold wall and avoided this by starting near the start of pleasure dome.
Steep and exciting with good protection from the cave on. The moves from where the good holds run out seemed solid 5a.

Ran both pitches together. Gave two nuts as an offering to the sea gods whilst crossing the zawn.

ooh! a good adventure. got soaked by a massive wave which turned my chalk to slime and made the damp balancy start over the bottomless zawn interesting. loads of variety of moves. took a rest after the left traverse where it got steep and i missed a finger jam on first attempt. run out start and lots of exposure for gary!

really varied. Scary climbing up the unprotectable slab start

Lots of variety on this multi-pith. Crux is getting up over the slight bulge at the end of the second traverse to get to the first stance. Just this move makes it a 5a in my opinion. I had to hold onto a quick draw at this point so I didn't complete the route properly. Very enjoyable and challenging!

Disastrous warm up. I didn't back off the VS, I backed off, off route of the VS. Like a total muppet I didn't realise the route presumably turns the arete and traverses really quite far left, and tried in vain to go up a groove instead (in which jugs were not forthcoming).
