A second time round for me, loved the shonky peg on the moves left round the arete on pitch one, I'm amazed it is still there. Moves round the rib on pitch two felt easier this time around, not sure why, perhaps because I went higher this time?

Fab route but 1st pitch was greasey & made bridging interesting. Great belay stance & traversy bits were awesome! Felt harder than any HS I've ever done.
BB1 - 2nd - 19/Nov/11 with Andy Carson

Without a doubt, a 3*** route. Half way through pitch one there is a very committing and exposed couple of moves but the holds are pretty huge. Would highly suggest for someone who is becoming familiar with the HS grade range.

I managed to back up each of the three pegs with either a small cam or rp in each case; with out these, yes it may feel a tad serious...

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.

Kylie - AltLd O/S - 17/Oct/10 with mullermn

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.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 12/Jun/09

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!
Dax - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/09 with Ward

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!

Crux on the first pitch very greasy (after rain). Required several attempts and much thuggery!

Nigel R Lewis - AltLd - 05/May/07

Awesome route. Led pitch 2 - run out towards the top, pegs being pretty much the only gear. They look solid, cemented in, and in good condition, however, and would be happy to fall on any of them. The traverse right on pitch 2 feels quite exciting...

First 20ft on a few preplaced runners (a attempt backed off by my partner), otherwise all clean. Fantastic route, well worth the stars. On the nervy side (for me if not for the grade).
