A bit epic as heavens opened on top pitch - took a small tree belay & we had to move fast - got soaked at the top..... could have been worse, storm killed 2 on Brecon beacons that day/time.

Damp in places and a while since I did any serious Trad, so this felt hard. I led P1 and a bit extra to the base of the Piton Route Slab, Toby led the rest of P2 of Piton Route and we abbed off the tree due to failing light.

George Frisby - 2nd O/S - 08/Jun/12 with Chris
Ran p1 & p2 together. Thin moves on the first couple of pitches, much more rhythmic climbing on p3. Finished in drizzle.
stafford101 - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/12 with George Frisby
Lead most of the climb, then bailed off onto Piton route as the others got psyched out by an unintentional 4c variation.
cbeard - AltLd O/S - 28/May/12 with Rob Sievwright, Katherine Ross
Charlie ran together P1 & P2. Disappointingly I fell off somewhere on P2 I think, but it definitely wasn't 4a! Rob didn't fancy the traverse and I'd psyched myself out of it so I led P3 of Piton Route instead.
Katherine Ross - 2nd dnf - 27/May/12 with Rob, Charlie Beard
Found the first pitch more technical than expected but the traverse pitch easier. Very good afternoon! Andy did the top slab to bag his first alternate lead onsight!

Very nice climbing, with some tricky moves on P2 and a devious line. Luke strung 1+2 together, I lead P3.

1st 2 pitches only (then p3 of Piton Route) Sure they have the grades back to front in guide book. "I think its starting to rain" was probably the last thing Dan wanted to hear whilst on the awkward section of p2. It didn't
PaulWatson - AltLd rpt - 09/Jun/11 with Dan
Thrutched up the slab at the start of P2 which felt totally unnecessary, should have thought a bit more first.

Scrambled up to a tree to start, then abbed off after it started drizzling and all of the rock became soaked. Scrambled back up after it calmed down a bit. Chris led P1 - quite damp groove to start. Rest of climb was in good condition. Nice route. Only a small amount of polish in one place on pitch 1. Gary led pitch 2 (placing virtually no runners!).
