Great route and a great day out. Went up the first pitch of Karma Sutra after discovering The Perfumed Garden lay in pieces on the floor!
Bold route - you have to get into the 'hand traversing with no footholds' frame of mind for some bits of it!Chris Sansum - AltLd O/S - 09/Mar/14 with Ewan Whitmey
Great fun, great exposure, great adventure

First pitch collapsed, went up Kama Sutra instead. Led pitches 2 and 5. Great climb, but quite a bit easier and less awkward than I expected it to be. And no in-situ seagulls around...

Led all pitches. A great route, the first pitch of perfume garden was quite hard for 5a (had a rest)then the 60m traversing across GO WALL was super exposed, great position. 3rd pitch of Kangouroo wall was quite sweet too at 5a with a nice position bridging out of the Chimney then the last pitch of King kong was quite easy. Well done Kat for the traversing :o)

Tim led the even number pitches, I led the evens. Hard first few moves of pitch one.
Some of the traversing was a bit hairy, especially when I had to to within a few inches of a seagull nest - thought I was going to fall off with that bloody bird attacking me!!
Great route though, definitely deserved the star!

AWESOME. This is an out dated style of climb, and all the better for it. How many routes these days have a 60 m traverse above huge overhangs, a proper chimney pitch, insitu seagulls, an epic crux on shit smears but huge jugs, and and 60-70m of air between your legs for the vast majority of the route? Simply epic... star star star plus.

An Awesome route! Worth three stars for the atmosphere and the positions. Very unusual climbing with pant wetting exposure! We belayed by the pegs on perfumed garden to give good visibility of the crux 2nd pitch. We also finished up the last pitch of kangaroo wall which was a great way to end although a fairly persistent rose bush adds to the character!

Bailed due to the attentions of a VERY determined seagull.

THE best route I've ever done. Load of variation in climbing, exciting positions and lovely rock. (Simon did the hard bit though :D )
