didnt like the rock on this very much seemed dirty, slippy to hold and suspect on the upper pitches.

Lead P2+3 as one and P5. First Extreme Rock tick, I believe, and great climbing even if it weren't. Very cold belays at the top of P3 and P4, in the shade and wind.

Me pitch 2, 3 and 5.

Great climb, led pitch 1, 3 & 5. Cruxes clean, but bit dirty in other areas. Guidebook description is correct, go from the top of the pillar on the first pitch.
MikeLeeds - AltLd O/S - 14/Jul/13 with Tom Jones

Mike, P1, P3 & P5. Me P2 & P4. One rest on P2, which I really shouldn't have taken.

Pretty clean and great 2nd and 3rd pitch especially if you do it as one. Abbed off after that.

Led p2/3 together and p5. The harder lower pitches are worth doing with good climbing and positions - a bit scrittly but cleaning up and currently all dry and chalked. The top two easy pitches aren't so great. Oh and found guidebook description spot on for p1, traverse left right at the top of the pillar, intimidating but not too bad. Tom tried the undercut flake half way and he found it a lot harder.
AJM - AltLd O/S - 06/Jun/13 with Tom Lambert

Good route up to the end of pitch 3. A bit dirty but getting cleaner with traffic. The route from the top of the pillar looks scary but is fine; don't be tempted by the more obvious but far harder lower traverse on undercuts.
Tubs - AltLd O/S - 06/Jun/13 with AJM

I led odd numbers. Would be fantastic if it was a bit cleaner. Deserves to get done more

considered lower traverse but stuck with guide book directions and went from top of boulder; fab route, was very dirty though

Mislead on the guidebook by first pitch, fran went of route, lowered off. I tried the correct route, obvious when your up there, gave up and lowered off. Franco tried and gave up and lowered off!! Its a traverse left, half way up the pillar, on big holds under a big undercut flake. compare this description with the guidebooks!! Will be back in a few weeks for a rematch with fresh arms.
