Finding it was the hardest part. Big packs on with bulky footwear through mud loose rock and brambles. However. The first pitch is brilliant with great gear all the way. Pitch 2 is some nice move's with more brambles. All in all. 1* and worth a look. luke glaister - AltLd O/S - 20/Sep/14 with casey johns
worth the effort just for the first pitch.

Roped the dodgy scramble approach (hard to find, climb up past teh metal rung). P1 was harder and sustained initally with good gear, not 4b. P2 much easier, finished up the nice steep rib/arete.

scotty h - 2nd β - 12/Oct/13 with Matt Moore, Andy Finney
Logged as DNF but actually Did not start But logged here for future reference. Approach is a long exposed diff solo! Deb backed off the crack after 3m, as it was getting late we abseiled off the same route we climbed up to the start and climbed Christmas Curry. Worth a revisit but looks quite sustained and maybe high in the grade.

First climb at Tremadog. I lead 1st, which was a brilliant bridging corner. The climb is let down by the second pitch which was, to be honest, dump. Also the Diff approach was terrifying in the damp with trainers.

most challenging route ive done so far as a climber which hasn't really been very long. The second pitch was fine and i got through it easy but i must admit i did struggle a bit on the crack.layed back up the middle part then there was a few holds to get up the rest. I did rest down on the rope once or twice but i managed to get through it so overall happy :)

Way harder than grades given the guidebook. 1st pitch is outstanding; very gymnastic. Second pitch is initially jungle exploration followed by by a desperated climb up a corner 'cause a crucial foothold is very polished. Might be better for the tall!

Scramble to the start (up broken chimney left of Kestral Crack) might want to be pitched.
1st pitch looks intinidating, but strenuous moves alls short lived, and load of good gear. Really nice pitch.
2nd pitch still a bit over grown, but good position on exposed slab.
Karlos - AltLd O/S - 27/Sep/08 with Ben
Led pitch 2. The approach was rather exciting! Pitch one also had its moments (and was definitely harder than the 4b given in the guide). A nice route all told though. Could do with more traffic on the upper slab!
