[He made it, 2 kb]164m, 6 pitches. Superb long route. Confusingly this also has 'FPR' scratched at the base of the climb! The leftwards traverse of pitch #4 joins First Pinnacle Rib on a ledge just above the Yellow Slab, and is the only slightly tricky route-finding on the climb.

Nice long multi-pitch, got rained on for the first few pitches but dried out higher up. Thompsons Chimney (S) at the end provides a nice challenge with a large rucksack!

Great fun on a roasting hot day, good to solo. Didn't fancy the chimney with a rucksack. Ended up descending north ridge to try and find a missing walker. Found him, missed last orders. Livid.

First mountain ascent. We did it in many more than six pitches, although the last was so long we were in danger of running out of rope! Went right of Thompson's chimney.

Last time I did this we started from the rib to the left, the other side of the heather bay...apparently this is now called overlapping route...anyhow - much the same - good mountainous deal that isn't too taxing anywhere - a good introduction to multi pitch mountain routes
Jeremy Wilton - AltLd O/S - 25/May/14 with Mark Bathe

KieranT - Lead O/S - 18/May/14 with Al Whitehead

I think we climbed this route! My guidebook [Rockfax] said so, but Sean's [Ogwen CC] said it was Overlapping Ridge Route. I led odd pitches, Sean did even ones. We skirted around Thompson's Chimney. A great route, especially p2. Felt tougher than a Diff though. Cracking weather. Not the best route description from Rockfax however!
Cornish boy - AltLd O/S - 18/May/14 with Sean

Some confusing descriptions here between RF and Groundup guides. I did the LH of the 2 pinnacle ribs, with the yellow slab. Didn't do Thomson's chimney as there was an in-situ leader on it.

What a contrast to climbing Slanting Buttress on Lliwedd the day before in the soaking wet - even got to break out the rock shoes :) Nice route but ran into traffic so opted for a detour up a nice arÍte then a tricky pitch up a crack and narrow chimney between two roofs. Also opted for the nice steep face to the left of Thomson's Chimney.

5 pitch steady climbing. Wet and greasy unfortunately but with a nice Severe twist on yellow slab. Mark won't let me live it down that he took my daysack while I led this pitch. Dan led up the stinking chimney as did mark. We reluctantly followed. Good mountain route.

The better of the two Pinnacle Ribs, but the yellow slab is the best of both. Considered the ' Severe arete continuation from the ledge to the right of the pinnacle' as described in latest guide, but hollow looking and sounding rock made up my mind to follow the standard route as described.

Excellent route. Crux pitch (Yellow slab) felt quite hard for the grade and I wouldn't want to try it in big boots, but perhaps I am soft. Very safe to climb though because if you fell off before getting any gear in, you would hit the pinnacle instead of falling to the bottom. Tip top!

flytzen - Lead - 27/May/07 with Jon Oakes

Had a delayed start as queing due to bank hols and another climber had fallen off so mountain rescue had to get him. Great climb, especially pitch 2 which feels exposed but plenty of pro all the way.

Super weather and a good route. I led in my winter boots and struggled as it was the first time I'd climbed in them. Lots of scrabbling. Nicky bimbled up quite happily. We were on the climb for 5 hours ish. Topping out at Adam and Eve was great, as was the curving flakes pitch.
