Quality climbing but the rock quality lets it down, entire route is loose/rattly. Lots of care required. I had ran out of big gear by the pillar so did the last 10 meters with only a peg for gear. Didn't think this was the crux but I was very focused. Also second pitch was nails. Easily 5b.

1st and 2nd pitches. Brilliant.
bonelessivar - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/15 with Alan
Led P3 up the slabby wall right of corner. An excellent route with the crux at the top of P1 pulling left out of the crack under the roof. Lots of continuous 4c climbing with 5a thrown in every now and then. Had to hang on the rope to unthread a nut through the flattened-peg well off to the left of the crack base on P1.

First E1 since my layoff. Really pleased. Good steady 5a climbing with plenty of gear and great rock. Lovely climb.

Les first pitch, flippen awesome. Julian lead 2, 3 together, great laybacking (pumpy) and cool moves on last bit. Would be great if last pitch was directly above the second.
charles-green - AltLd O/S - 23/Aug/14
Led P1, P2; Simon led P3 as it got dark. Forgot how much fun the moves are on P1
simonf - AltLd - 19/Aug/14 with Simon
Good, honest 5a route. Traversing the first, short pillar fine as a second, but leading it would be bold as the next piece of pro is quite run out from the nuts at the groove at start of pillar. Led p2 & 3 together which is fine as long as you extend your pro adequately. Several plum holds were lose!

All Pitches. P2 and P3 together. Fell off near the very top as my hand hold came off while using it. F(quite bold if you dont use the left corner). hard hit on some ledges first then tumble a little further. I carried on aiding myself on the easy corner on the left i don't know how, rolled over to safety then called for help as i was in lots of pains and could not move to set up the belay. Ambulance took me to A nd E. nothing broken and was discharged at 3am luckily, only bruising, muscles and soft tissue injury i presume but hell it hurts today! Nice route mindu, might be a tad harder now without that hand hold at the end, sorry...Thank you bpmclimb (bill?) and Clare for helping me at the top
Fred_Richard - Lead - 16/Aug/13 with andymccoy
All pitches. Linked 2 and 3 with a big sling on the belay pegs to reduce drag. Stiff for 5a on all pitches. 5b for 1st and 2nd.
Ollie B - Lead O/S - 22/Jul/13 with H.Watchorn
Leigh P1, me P2 and P3 although we paused between the 2nd and 3rd. Very impressed with Leigh's lead on P1. I felt that the move below the last overhang was harder than 5a but I'm not in much shape to judge and particularly after pulling a massive block off of the face after the first peg before the first roof. This scared me and affected my climbing for the rest of the climb. I could have given up climbing at first :-) If Leigh had pulled the same block off whilst he led I might have been seriously hurt or worse - chilling.
puppythedog - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/13 with leigh
I lead first pitch which was long and awesome. James suffered a big rock fall while seconding - we were both very lucky!
James lead 2nd and 3rd pitches.
There were some tough moves.

P2 & 3
ERU - AltLd O/S - 25/Mar/12 with Mark Anstey
Scared Chris on P1 when he asked me to take and fell a lot further than he expected - my stance collapsed and rolled down the slope.
Led P2. Nice, straightforward and well protected. Planned to do P3 as well, but could barely pull the rope at the base of the wall, so went back to the pegs and belayed from there.
Hooo - AltLd O/S - 11/Mar/12 with Chris Sieradzki
Messed up at the first overhang, instead of going to the left i tried to go directly through the overhang. Pulled on jug and than spoted peg on the left and realized i was out of the route. Asked partner to take and gained Big Fly. Continued clean to the top.

Led the second and third pitches in one. Fairly sustained yet straight-forward crack climbing on pitch 2. Pitch three made trickier by running pitches together.

Lead 1st and 3rd pitch. 5a. Sustained physical. 3rd not really a pitch, if leading 2nd pitch don't clip pegs at belay and pitch it out.
BEWARE, lots of loose holds and some will undoubtable fall/break soon, especially on 1st pitch
darren hudson - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/10 with David Ford
Bit dirty, lead all 3 pitches. Possibly did P3 a bit wrong, placed gear in corner, then climbed wall to right

Tom led P1, I did P2 and P3 in one push - rope drag wasn't a problem. Final headwall a bit scary - solid micro low down but would probably hit the large ledge if you come off the last few moves.

Bux - AltLd O/S - Oct/05 with Chris Wyatt
A great route of three contrasting pitches. A word of caution: a TV-sized block is hanging loose at the belay at the end of the second pitch. Seriously loose. The fall line is straight down the pitch so climbers beware. This ought to be removed before someone is hurt. Further, several pegs mentioned in the guide are missing.
