mick1jones - AltLd dog - 03/Jun/14 with Rich Rogers
Found very hard, faffed around far too lang trying to get a runner in at the last big pocket while trying to get my whole body stuck in there. Was completely knackered when I finally pulled out rightwards. Difficulties remain surprisingly long after.

Linked in one pitch. (though dithered at the belay for ages deciding to) Warmed up on Limbo so checked to see if it was dry on the ab as it was raining in the morning (Beta) checked a wire placement...oh the shame. Think I traversed out one move to early and had to go up on awkward pinches. The natural line following the big flakey laybacks left from the cave would be much easier. 2nd pitch is probably only 4c
Kemics - Lead β - 25/Oct/12 with Enduro Dan
led the first pitch which was excellent, got rained on at the belay but it stopped nicely in time for me to climb the second pitch!
James S - AltLd O/S - 12/Sep/12 with jamie
Did the 2nd pitch as soon as it started to rain, which was fine but the 2nd pitch has a lot of vegetation and every hold was wet because of that.
zcsharp - AltLd - 12/Sep/12 with James S
mattshort - AltLd - 02/Sep/12 with Alan Murray
Stayed left going through the big pocket which made it feel pretty strenuous. Realised on the ab afterwards that going right at the pocket looked a lot easier.
Most of the top pitch is a bit of a disappointing thrash through vegetation but it's still a satisfying route.

Got the second, easier pitch. Descending with a single rope is interesting...
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 01/Apr/12 with Martin
Awesome. Led it with a big 6m run out through the crux - too pumped to look for gear! Hanging belay was interesting.

Led P1. 3 strenuous tugs and its over. Great hanging belay, although got quite painful hanging in air waiting for Jack to second and lead P2. Better than Limbo? - easily as good as.
Stanners - AltLd O/S - 24/Jul/11 with Jack Bradbrook
Bloody good route as well! I don't think its as good as Limbo simply because the crux sequence is just a bit too streatforward for my liking the fact that you can get a no hands rest kneebar in the middle of the steep crux section definitely makes it super cool though. and the second pitch features some nice climbing up a grove.
I think I'm also right in saying that this is the first route I've done with a hanging belay. (Led pitch 2)

Hard E1 if stringing the pitches I think. Finished in the dark, but to be fair, the sun had pretty much set before I started.
Stone Muppet - Lead O/S - 09/Sep/10 with Paz
First E1 on the same day as my first HVS! Misha led the harder first pitch and I led the second. Lots of good moves through the overhang. I had trouble route finding towards the top, moved left a bit and had some rock break off whilst run out. Luckily didn't peel off with it. Perfect route for my current level, really enjoyed it.
royal - AltLd O/S - 07/Aug/10 with Misha
Good line, big holds and not too hard if you get the footwork right. Great hanging belay. Led P1.
Misha - AltLd O/S - 07/Aug/10 with royal
so knackered after seconding first pitch that I had to rest on lead 2nd - still a brilliant climb
evhall - AltLd dog - 08/Jul/10 with Leandro

Led in one big pitch (45-50m?) to the big rock anchor. Superb route, keeps going all the way. Suffering from heat exhaustion and two agonising achilles tendons by the end :S
Si dH - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/10 with Andy Morris
Had a tight rope for a second at the crux, after finding this a bit tough. Maybe I missed a jug, or perhaps the crucial hold was one of those bits of rock that dropped onto my head when the second was doing the crux!
Rich led the route.

Easy climbing up to the ledge, the moves get progressively harder as you pull through the pockets but jugs keep on coming to hand... nice balancy move around the corner to a neat hanging belay.

maresia - AltLd dog - 07/Oct/07 with Mike Kann
Had done bits of it before with Paz for the EoP/Oblivion combo. Did p1 and most of p2 as one - stopped a break before the traverse left because I was confused where to traverse. Had to abseil from there though, Ali struggled seconding.
