[Climb When Ready, 2 kb]126m, 5 pitches. The right-hand of the trio of saintly routes is often damp, though it is still well worthwhile. Start under the right-hand sheet of slab where its undercut base ends 1) 35m. Step then trend left up the edge of the slab before heading direct to a big stance 2) 30m. Follow the quartz rails out left to a crack and head up this to belay 3) 16m. An easy groove leads to a stance under the West Wall 4) 28m. Climb leftwards onto the next sheet of slab then tiptoe up its left edge to a stance. A neat pitch 5) 25m. More broken ground leads up then left to reach the large terrace below the upper walls. Escape left along the 'Easy Way' or continue on upwards. © ROCKFAX

Pleasant slab climbing with great views. Mark didn't quite make it to the arete on P4 which required a bit of up-right-down-left to retrieve gear and stay on line. Lead P1,3,5. Weaved a bit on P5 to avoid other pair on Hope. Done in camp4s.

First multipitch route for Deborah so i led every pitch. Pretty wet-lots of the holds were full of water! But great to get back on the slabs after a gap of more than 20 years.

Led all pitches with Catherine following. Good challenge to do so much leading. Climbing was fairly straightforward though I couldn't always match the route to the description. A bit wet, climbing in the rain!

Climbed as second of three on MIA teaching day.

Learned how to equalise anchors. Clipped rope 1 out and rope 2 in as I climbed. Descended on rope.

C pitch 1, D pitch 2, me pitches 3/4 in one, C final pitch. Guidebook pitch lengths are badly wrong on 3 and/or 4 - I should have got to the stance on Hope with 18m of our 60m ropes to spare , but I only just made it to the 'awkward belay' 5m earlier with 2m left!

allanfarrell - AltLd O/S - 11/May/09 with Emma Turnbull

Lead all pitches first multi-pitch climb. With gear and rucksacks.It was windy. The rain was coming down in Sheets. It was like climbing a waterfall. All the hand holds were flooded with ice cold water and running over. Sleeves soaking upwards. Stopped on the 4th pitch for a cup of tea and a biscuit and enjoy the view. Those snap hand-warmers are great. Got to the top. Ha Ha !!! What we thought was the top but the descent was worse than the climb...... and its called the easy route OFF!!! Glad Ed was there to guide us off abseiling with wet rope is not funny. Spray everywhere... BUT WELL WORTH THE TRIP THANKS Alex and the guys.... same again but in the summer or at least in the sunshine. Or even just DRY will do next time.

Wet and slimy makes it a much more sporting V Diff. Should certianly dyno for the hold at the top of the "perilous" twin cracks and for the uncertain there is no doubt about where the gear placements are after 50 or more years of wear. A soggy end to 4 wet days in Wales. Enjoyed by Richard and 14 year old Joe as well!
