Tony Led the approach pitch. Despite the recent heatwave the gully was green and nasty so he went round to the right. I led the excellent first pitch, 4c, and P2 (4a) but overshot it and so led P3 too, wondering why it seemed like an exposed 4c. That left Tony leading the scramble off.AndyMcCoy - AltLd O/S - 27/Jul/13 with Tony Bird
I led P3. Pitch 1 is 3* fun in the dry. Care is required on P3 to keep the sling on the spike for long enough to get gear in higher up otherwise (I imagine) a gibber may ensue. (Weighting the sling down with spare gear would help). The gangway left was trickier than expected.

I'm not sure we followed the right line at all. Lou Led P1, Chris led P2.

Approach pitch (P1 of intermediate Gully) was nasty and we did on the right instead. Me P1 & P3. Colin P2. P1 'greasy crack' was OK providing you just used it for gear and kept yer fingers out. the step onto the arete was bold and unprotected. P3 traverse to the spike delightful and the holds then excellent. protection sparse. Fantastic Route. Very highly recommended.

Soloed first pitch. Watching the sling lift off the spike as Stewart led pitch three was an interesting moment, glad he didn't fall there!

AWESOME climb! (for the main pitch - pitch 3 I think, up the arete).
Easily one of the best VS's I've ever done.
Led the two 4c pitches.
Luke did the heinous pitch 1 of Intermediate Gully (I think it's called). It's got no gear so it's a solo - well done to that man!
(the pitch can be protected with a big enough cam, mind)

Excellent climb. Accidentally did the third pitch of Charmer (HVS 5a). Downclimbed that and then did the proper 3rd pitch!

Led P2, which was easy climbing but with virtually no gear. Pitch 3 was fantastic!

P1 & 3. Greasy start but soon improves. Messed up protection on P3 & had a big runout.

P3 felt very bold above the loose spike. Also, notice that the guidebook says "start from the top of P1 of intermediate gully", not "climb P1 of intermediate gully". If you're not good at traditional technique then that's probably the hardest part!
