Retreated after the first pitch. Misled by the CC guidebook which suggested the route started from the Breakfast Ledge, which is actually the end of the first pitch. Having felt the 'scrambly approach' rather tough, we backed off without realising we'd done a pitch.

First multi-pitch trad lead (pitches 1,2 and 3). It'd totally fine to do 2+3 together.

Veg-e-tated and very prickly, scratchy start, would benefit from pruning, as it's quite a nice climb/traverse. The first pitch has some interesting foot work.

Lead pitch one and three. I reckon that the first part of pitch two beneath the overhang is ~4a (in opposition to the cc guide)
George.Rowland - AltLd O/S - 30/Nov/13 with sam coppard
Led P2. After the horrible scramble to the start of the route, it actually becomes pretty good. The first pitch is really the crux and the run-out on the second pitch is nowhere near as bad as I had expected.
Started just after rain, finished in the dark.
Props to whoever put the action man in place.

Didn't spot the bolts to realise I was meant to go upwards and carried on traversing until reaching some saplings just above and left of the belay of Sinister and Clarion. The last few metres before the belay, after the ledge was long gone, felt a fair bit harder than 4a for sure but still really nice climbing and fairly exciting.

Dr Caterpillar - AltLd O/S - 20/Oct/07 with Adam
Was mostly dry by 3pm, damp and mud on the ledges detracted from the enjoyment, still a nice route. The 4a move on pitch 1 is a delicate step around a wide rib, hanging from a jug. The best bit is pitch 2, a long traverse under the massive roof. A narrow ledge is attained early and followed, disconcertingly downwards, until it fizzles out, whereupon some moves up the slab gain ancient rusty bolts. Protection is not great and you need to trust your shoes, mud and damp didn't help. I used the bolts as back-up for some wires and a fat sling around the tree. Pitch 3 finishes easily up an obvious crack to lunchtime ledge. Topped out with Direct Route, which is always a pleasure.

That long traverse across the crack is an easy walk, but no protection til you read the old (and apparently untrustworthy) bolt. As ledge runs out, go UP!
Pitch 3 - 18m - PK lead
