Isabella Rose 6a
[First Ascent of Isabella Rose, 2 kb]23m. Climbs the flake and groove line directly to the right of "Llewelyn ap..." and shares the final bolt and lower-off with that route.

Start at the obvious flake feature and climb directly through some broken rock to an awkward move leading to the 6th bolt. Above this move off left to easier ground and the lower-off.

Some loose rock. Will improve with traffic.

Bolted with 6 10mm Stainless Steel expansion bolts.

Dad went up first leading, and about two thirds of the way up couldn't go any further! Very unlike him. I tried it and also could go no further - but have just read that a big hold came off on the last ascent - bummer!

A large hold came off just before the lower off.

Surprisingly good - well worth climbing.

Great route. Experienced rock fall flake 4m up, after it had already taken weight.

found the hardest part was getting to the 2nd bolt, after that it was steady and better than it looked, plenty of bolts and appears to have cleaned up a bit

Did this without knowing what it was. I thought it was a nice climb although as others have mentioned there are some loose blocks about half way up but you climb round these without ever going too near them. felt about 5/5+ to me.
SGD - Lead O/S - 04/May/14 with Vicky Holmes

A poor and rather worrying route - gaining the second bolt is particularly scarey! Nowhere near as good as the other routes on the slab.
roger whetton - 13/Apr/14

Needs a clean to make it safe! Some very loose large blocks about 60% up route, didnt like the risk of knocking them down onto belayer, so lowered off.

Between 5th and 6th bolt my foot slipped twice on a crap foot hold then I completely fell from the route. Nice technical climb until then, shame the rock is extremely loose.

As mentioned above will be better with traffic. Beware, theres a lose block on the right by the 5th. Nice enough tho at 6a and gets you to the top
