Great route, much better than I remember from having done it back in 2003. The back up plan after all the other routes I fancied appeared a touch too moist.

Just enough seepage to make it a no-go, sadly. Nice trip in and out though!

Superb! Very sustained but protection easy. A surprising amount of loose rock on pitch 3 however, I wouldn't pull on the flake in the corner!! Did 210m of climbing then 40m of scrambling so quite a bit longer than the SMC guide suggested. A classic!

Got pitches 2,4,6(wet scramble to top), nice climbing especially the wide crack of 2 which was steep and intimidating and dry when most other stuff was v wet. Felt a bit stiff for vs. also longer than the guide indicates we had to do 1.5 pitch of wet easygoing scrambling to top out.

Conditions looked and were initially great and we even got to climb in the sun for a while. Used a lower start, led Pitch 2 then Ross led another 2.5 pitches before deteriorating conditions forced us to bail

Good VS climbing all the way. Particularly enjoyed Pitch 3, although pitch 2 has the hardest section. Was a real struggle today with a cold wind and drizzle for the middle pitches. Topped out in the sun though.

Freezing cold and windy. Route was dry though except for a couple of bits higher up. Fairly sustained VS climbing. Crux pitch not too bad. Not sure where the 5a move was on the 4th pitch as it all felt consistently 4c. Tiring due to the cold conditions.

The last weekend of good weather?.......apart from the cold and drizzle it was a fantastic intro into multi pitch. 2nd pitch crux is commiting, 4th pitch crux easier i thought. Great rock and friction also good, even became sunny later on - BONUS!
