Massive rope drag, hawthorn, roses, loose rock and no gear. The worst route I have tried to climb in the gorge. Simply awful.

Alex Winter 30/Aug/14 Solo O/S

Good positions, unmemorable and disjointed climbing. Startled a couple enjoying the view at the top.

crossdressingrodney 24/Jul/14 Lead O/S

Started the route at 9pm. Went too far round to the right. Crap rock, no protection. Brilliant setting though and a great way to get 100m of climbing done with no car.

Really nice first pitch, nice moves, position and no polish - amazing for the Gorge! Shame about the top out. Not much in the way of gear so not one to push your grade on.

Warmed up from biting cold to just cold. A good climb, better than Stranded

with Peter
pheotleyr 25/Mar/13 Lead O/S

Good climbing, not a lot of gear but reasonable if you're confident at the grade (soft 4a?). Easier and better than Stranded.

Great route! Plenty of varied climbing. Just a shame there is no way to protect any of it. Went around the corner early and directly up from second belay which were both more strenuous alternatives.

Took the direct line straight up the nose of the buttress from the belay stance to come out left of the wire netting. Excellent rock, abysmal protection.

Stanners 10/Mar/12 2nd rpt

again, not as good as I remember. Doing it barefoot might have something to do with it. Painful walk back to bags. Very dark when we finally got to the top, but worthwhile with the view of the SSB lit up.

with James Rich, Jack Bradbrook
JamesRich 10/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Practically soloed it because I only bothered with one (slightly dubious) sling round a spike for protection on the whole route as it was getting dark. Pretty easy for s I thought.

Couldn't see much, climbing in the dark with Converse.

Warm in the sun, Lovely afternoon for January... Rope drag a bit of an issue at the moment due to ivy on the very top of the buttress by the top out

Very vegetated and runout. Horrific rope drag when two pitches are linked. Climbed in the dark. Not recommended.

Some good climbing, can be made more interesting as required. Over vegetated in places.

Quite bold for severe relay exposed good climbing though on the second pitch

Vegetation at the top is really annoying, otherwise brilliant.

Lead pitch 2. Large audience at the top! Not a great climb, too broken, vegetated and chossy.

Followed on from Stranded. Dan 1st Me 2nd. Would be a half decent route if it weren't for the prolific vegitation and netting. Like Stranded, both pitches have a hard enough crux to warrant a 4a, but the rest is mundane. Head for the telescope by keeping left at the top.

Worryingly sparse gear but in contrast to some other notes here I found some really nice climbing, particularly on the first pitch. The first belay ledge is lovely too. Very overgrown at the top though with a worrying runout.

Started + finished in the dark. Had a little wander around before finding a slightly easier looking way to the top.

Overgrown in places and difficult to pick the route.

Tempest ?/Aug/06 AltLd

Got a bit stuck on the first pitch (lead), running into a blank wall with pro about 4m below. Eventually traversed (probably back onto the route!) and set up a hanging from a tree. Andy lead through to the top. Some dodgy rock in places.
