55m, 2 pitches. A really nice long reach on the first pitch, which is lovely once you've found it. The climb wanders about a bit, but a lovely route

Great climb easily worth 3 stars, convinced partner to let me lead first pitch, so glad i did amazing climbing if a little wet in areas. Had a mini heart attack when couldn't find the pegs for the belay, found them eventually. Second pitch well protected with pegs although guide book mentioned committing moves did not notice any. All round great climb!

Seconded Sally up this. Suprised at the 3 stars, I thought it was a pretty average route for Wintours Leap. Certainly no better than a route such as Bottle Buttress which gets 2 stars. Apart from a section of 3 moves on the first pitch and then a runout section on the 2nd pitch it is basically a Severe.

Led p2, went ok until after the 2nd peg, saw a third peg way up and right and headed for it. It quickly turned very bold, hard and blank, was most of the way into the E2/3, then followed a harrowing traverse round a bulge on poor slopers with no more gear to get back on route to the hidden peg. Never been so in fear of a massive fall past Dave on the belay ledge onto an old skinny peg, probably to my death. Should of read the guide book i guess!! Good route.

Lead on first pitch. Interesting 4b move at the top of the right hand corner. More technique and less grunt needed. Took the 2nd from Rob climbing on a twin ropes. 2nd pitch nice move around the nose to the second peg. Big ledge ample gear (and trees) at final belay point Exit to the top a bit overgrown (Rob and Joe Ab'ed back to bags) but easy to make headway. Place one nut at the top of the right hand corner for good measure Just behind the two trees where Zelda finishes. Nice few layback moves then scramble up through trees to footpath.

Nice, not sure it's quite worth 3 stars. Seconded P1 with heavy rucksack, which made the initial corner quite tough. Lead P2, large sections of which are only protected by pegs. Pitch is probably HS if you trust them - if you don't it's much harder as there are some big runouts between natural gear.

Left guidebook at bottom of route and didn't memorise the route properly. Wondered left from the 1st belay in the vague direction of Greta instead of taking the right traverse. Will be back at some point to do the route properly!

I led the 1st pitch, Ward led 2nd pitch.

Great climb. Corner start is a bit out of character with the rest of the route. I found that when the climbing got easier the run outs got longer .. on the first pitch there was a couple of times when I was about 10ft+ above last piece of gear (not what I'm used to on a HS but the climbing was easy at these points). I didnt mind, didnt want to spend ages faffing about. BTW I only voted for two stars as dont think the route was particularly consistent .. if the last 20 metres of pitch one had been a little harder but with more pro then I would have given it 3 stars.

In hindsight should have suspected that there may have been pro issues due to the number of pegs mentioned in the route description .. you don't normally have 3 or 4 pegs on an HS.

Note: Managed to smack my left knee on the last move of the entire route .. you could hear me cursing in Chepstow!

Lead 2nd pitch. first 10 meters of first pitch is in an enclosed corner (v pollished) as soon as you exit the corner the climbing gets easy (ish) until the belay. 2nd pitch was not technicaly dificult but the 2 traverses give a good sense of exposure and the lack of gear makes it "interesting" Great route!

Felt more like a VS in places but enjoyable climb if not a tad too hot today. Tried climbing direct on P2 but once up so far no hand holds or places for pro. Having returned and taken the arete and nose line, I can confirm the 2 stars are to be had here.

Hardest HS I have done, led first pitch corner top not as hard as it looks, and the pull up at the peg is a good positive. Got confused looking for the belay, you need to head for the tree above left. Second pitch one monster move, but its there - lack of gear above realy scared Sean, I was bricking it even with gear above me, but all was well. Finished in the dark

bit of a wibble on the initial corner. dave set off to do the first pitch and downclimbed, I went to the same point and downclimbed, some kind soul retrieved our gear, then as nobody appeared about to do the route I gave myself a talking to and had another shot, which all went well. Protection on the upper bit was not nearly as bad as I feared - sparse but sufficient. Tremendous route!

Love it. Really nice HS. The crux is intimidating and exposed... on the face of it until you figure out that the lack of positive holds at the nose is not even relevant.... palm.... lean right and around the corner.... and smile as you easily locate the "thank you God" jugs that materialise around the other side.
