A great route, first pitch just needs a bit of cleaning

First after work climb of the year, in the sun. Really nice route, especially the 2nd pitch as others have said. The brambles mentioned below seem to have gone or been reduced significantly. Led both pitches.

my 01/Apr 2nd

Mike Led both p1 & p2. I bottled p1 lower half as no gear. Wimp. Good route though, felt quite hard for vs.

I lead the first pitch and accidentally part of the 2nd pitch too. I overshot the normal belay and took a belay at the top of the right-to-left ramp, just before the final left-to-right ramp. The brambles on the first pitch really are annoying and come at a delicate point where you could really do without the distraction. Some of the ledges are a bit dirty too (beware after rain!). All in all, an enjoyable route though, and the slab you topout on is in a great position. We added some tat to the ab point on the tree at the top of the slab, as the black rope looked pretty weathered and there was one other thinish piece

led 2nd pitch. Top pitch felt hard to me. Great line though, quality climbing and features. It was a bit over grown and dirty. With a little more traffic it would be incredible

with Mel
Melonfly 23/Jun/15 AltLd O/S

Led first pitch, bit run out to start. Some small hedges to pull through. Great varied route, least polish on gorge. Really enjoyed.

I didn't enjoy the first pitch (brambles, route- finding) but the second pitch was excellent

Mantle amazement. Airy top pitch. Vegetated lower pitch - scary as holds hidden in thorns

Mike ran it in one pitch. Rope very nearly ran out. Pulled a solid looking hold off & fell. boo.

Ragingpossum 26/Feb/14 AltLd O/S

One of the hidden gems of Avon, that is well worth seeking out. Pleasant climbing on the 1st pitch proceeds the awesome 2nd pitch that weaves through E1 territory following rock reminiscent of Unknown Buttress. I led P1, Laura led P2

First VS lead! Really enjoyed both pitches, particularly the second. Committing moves but good gear.

Amazing climbing on the second pitch, great holds which you rarely see on Avon limestone. Good gear as well.

Cool rock, shame it seems so friable in places. Good top pitch on this.

Great climb. Airy, exposed top pitch but with very good protection.

Great route! Interest, variety, challenging...and it's not polished to within an inch of its life. We did it on the day of the 10k when the Portway was closed to give us a unique Avon experience - no polish and no traffic noise! Shhh, don't tell the others.

lead 1st pitch, very nice due to some vegetation, good protection, 2nd pitch is great, exposed climbing on beautiful rock

with Todd

4c pitch. Fantastic route!!! even though the vegetation was a little annoying. Exciting and slightly technical working way up crack/slanting slab. Good effort with 1st pitch James

with James Rich

Very pleasantly surprised by this route it's really worth seeking out. I Lead p.1 and Rob led the excellent top pitch.

Really nice climb, but quite a lot of vegetation on P1. Got rained on near the top of P2 so felt quite tricky for 4c.

Nice route - 2nd pitch quite intimidating, initial ramp quite scarry - spent a lot of time sussing out the top move, but easier than it looks.

Chris Sansum 03/Jul/10 AltLd rpt

Chris P1, Gary P2. Gary ended up a long way off route after thinking the 'much steeper ramp' was a flake rather than a ramp. Had a slight epic after finding himself in E3/4 territory! He ended up down-climbing back to the steeper ramp and climbed it.

Did it in one long pitch, carefull rope work needed.

really nice, not 'hard for the grade' as guide book suggests. Interesting last moves. Topped out in light rain. death(ish) descent in dark and wet down rock ramp then scramble
