Great lead, chimney at the top was interesting for an ample gentleman like myself. Breathe in....And to make the climb even better, there was an osprey diving into the lough as well. dakidunn - Lead - 20/Aug/14 with Tris Brown
Loose rocks but Great route, got eaten by the chimney at the top, only problem dropping kit!

Tremendous route! Loved the moves and some great exposure. The rock was dry, clean and grippy. Climbed left around the chimney because I didn't want to spoil what had so far been a beautiful climb. I hate chimneys.

Top squeeze chimney was the very definition of 'thrutch'. Also a relatively difficult move lower down on the face.

Plan was to break the route into two due to a smallish rack. However when I reached the stance my partner decided he didn't fancy it! I had to get creative with placements for the upper pitch :) Great climb, well worth doing!

Top route - surprising amount of grass and ferns given its classic status. The final chimney is quite easy if you stay outside, but would be bold that way on lead.

Pleasant climbing up to the top chimney... novel constricted layback moves worked well, although not a climb for the larger built. Also, minimized bulky gear and ditch spare shoes, bags, etc.

Very top hold snapped off the last 2m high wall to the very top, sent me bouncing about 6-7m back down the crag - ouch. Nothing else loose on the route, so don't be put off, cracking good climbing - the top chimney is a bit tight.

Great route. Loved the length (34m) but bottled the chimney and went round to the left. Anchor points at the top wern't so plentyful! Will be back to have another go later in the year.

Exciting climb - more like mountaineering than crag climbing - complete with loose blocks and doubtful flakes but nonetheless worthy of three stars. Climbed with Matthew who had spent much of the previous week on a Geography field course beneath the crag and in driech conditions. In contrast Saturday was a delightful day and, as one of the 'locals' said, was the 'Crag Lough season'. Huge trout in the water below.

Flew up this one, but time was pressing so didn't quite finish it. I think I may need to loose a bit of weight around my arse to complete this one as there's an unpleasant tight chimney at the top

A great route that goes on and on. Unfortunately it has 2 distinct cruxes and the rest is considerably easier, but it's definitely a three star route all the same.

Ably led by Phil in the setting sun when it was nearly pub o'clock. He now says he is retiring from leading! The trick with this is to look for the crack at the back of the chimney - as found by Steve - cos otherwise flailing around on the outside or jamming yourself inside the chimney it ends up being more like HVS

Year is approximate.
All I can remember is (a) faffing for ages summoning up the courage to leave the spike, and (b) looking down from near the top to see every piece of gear I'd placed was sliding down the rope, and saying "oh w**k" :-)
