Led P1. Nice route. Didn't find any gear until the top of the slab.
Alex Winter - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/13 with Nick

Good route, very typical Avon style.

Lead both pitches. The flake mentioned in the guidebook on P1 is loose. As a result didn't use it and didn't think it would have taken gear. Best treat start as unprotected until the overlap. Great route. Classic traverse.

Lead p1, poor gear. Stepped right out of groove to find gear and take LH end of overhang. Traverse was tricky too, but much more gear
Cheese Monkey - AltLd O/S - 29/Apr/13 with Peter

Led 2nd pitch. 1st pitch with an additional spicy traverse to remove Ben's off-route protection. 2nd pitch might only be worth HVS, at least if you don't think about the state of the pegs...

i led first pitch. wasnt as badly protected as the guidebook made out (still not great). room full of mirrors that gets hvs 5a seemed scarier the other day to me so dont know where that leaves this. I'd say soft e1 but if thats the case then RFOM should probably be upgraded.

Some nicely bold but straight-forward climbing on the 1st pitch (Gives it the E1 grade). Traverse was fairly straightforward in comparison. Typically Avon - in that it had a lot of rusty pegs!!

Led quickly before the swelling became prohibitive after doing a 15ft face-plant near enough breaking my nose and wrist whilst bouldering to warm up. Watched the rugby later through blurry eyes. Lovely sun, decent climb. Great days.

also did what was known as 'Maltravers Right' in those days - 1st pitch of Maltravers then up to the L end of the OH then R across the slabs to arete + up that... bit loose IIRC - HVS 5a. Maltravers itself was HVS 4c 4c back then
