Lead p1&3. Great route! Bit of extra juggy fun taking the final capping roof on p3 direct.

A great route. Did the Malbogies direct start. The crux of that took some figuring out, nicely technical. The shared section of Malbogies itself felt pretty run out in places for HVS 5a! Brilliantly crazy line on P2, hard to figure out where to go (little chalk on the route) and sustained technical interest throughout. Down, across, up, down, across, up, across! Belayed right below where P3 goes through the overhanging band, which was a good spot for protecting Ed on the traverse but not so great for P3 as there's hardly any gear on it and it was right above the belay. Wasn't too concerned though, nicely sustained 5b and 5a climbing but nothing desperate. There was an old peg and RPs about 5 metes above the belay and then another 5+ metres to where things eased off. An Avon classic and top end E2. Led all pitches.

A relentlessy devious line, excellent technical climbing.

Wish I read the other route comments before climbing the route. My partner took a 35' fall on the first pitch. 3-4m above peg when hold gave way and he ended up 8-9m below it. Got up and went again though. I led 2nd and 3rd pitch, climbing was brilliant Gorge material.
Do not climb the first pitch unless you want that really 'out there' experience.

Led pitches 1 and 3. Really good. The climbing is quite intricate and difficult to read in places, although feels ok once figured out.
Alex Winter - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/13 with Nick
I led p2, Alex pitches 1 and 3. Very intricate climbing, technically sustained but mostly in balance and not at all strenuous. Classic Avon.
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/13 with Alex Winter
E2, pushing E4 elsewhere in the country. Mildly terrifying gear situations on P2 - very peggy!

Led pitch 1 (Malbogies direct start) and pitch 3. Interesting climbing, shame about overgrown top.

Led 2nd pitch, found it pretty hard - especially to figure out where I was supposed to be going! Okay climbing when you do, though not too happy with the choss at the top of the 2nd pitch. 3rd pitch was pretty good.

........not doing the actual pitch 1 of this route ever again. Had to lower off peg and thread. Looks amazing pitch 2 and 3 though so will return with alternate start.

Stevie hyper dee lead the bold 2nd pitch, which had virtually no gear, classic avon.
Ricky Rocks - AltLd - 03/Jun/10
Led pitches 1 and 2. 1st pitch seemed a bit dangerous.
