Cracking route, don't understand why the final pitch (4) above great ledge gets missed out by some - nice moves up through the V shaped notch, good abseil at the top (walking off would involve going through a garden). Almost set off on the E2 5C to the right by mistake, many thanks to Tony for pointing it out.

Very enjoyable, been on my tick list for at least a year so nice to get up it. 1st pitch a bit rubbishy, 2nd, 3rd and 4th very nice. BEWARE there is a very loose 'brick' above the first belay, obviously used to be a nut placement but has now detached. There is also evidence of freshish rock fall from just before the second belay with more to come. It is perfectly climbable but keep your eyes open.

Climbed as a roped solo using Silent Partner. Didn't manage to get any other routes done as couldn't get motivated in the morning, and didn't arrive until 2.30pm! Still, an enjoyable afternoon, and worth the trip. Shiny new ascenders made the ascending part a lot less time consuming and soul destroying! A good fun climb on solid rock, with good gear all the way. Thought it was easy for HS - felt more like severe (although I've been climbing harder recently, so maybe I'm just getting stronger!).
