A really good looking route, easy to access and good conditions.. all spoilt by an incompetent second. First pitch clean, however had to retreat from there. Lessons learned.

Again. Brilliant evenings climbing. Enjoyable all the way. Picture perfect climbing followed by a beer in the pelican. :)

Led odd pitches. Mind-blowing exposure pretty much constantly, feeling kind of shell-shocked now. Final pitch was easily worth E1 after doing 6 other strenuous pitches (but completely worth doing). Traverse 5m to the small but obvious vertical line and power on up. Wet look cave was plenty dry enough but the traverse in was a bit wet. Even the first easy downclimb was massively exposed. A mad mad route and one of the very best I have done at the grade

A truly well-deserved route name. Tough-feeling, but pretty soft for HVS except for the very last pitch, which is actually tough indeed.

Worthy of the title, felt sustained all the way with the last pitch proving to be the tester!

Turned back after second pitch as it was wet and slippery.

One to return to... Wet holds with ponds in the bigger ones. Half way across p2 and back. Looks like an awesome route...

Awesome. In and out of the wet cave was "interesting". Finished up Siren corner as psych was running low by then. Not a route for the faint hearted, take every Cam you own (we had 10 and could have done with more). Had previously done first 2 pitches, but all new ground from then on.

Big Lee 26/Aug/13 AltLd O/S

Great climbing, crazy exposure, wet rock in the cave, and not enough cams made this rather epic. Both exciting and terrifying all at the same time.

Well named. Slow and steady over nearly 6 hours. Skipped the last 5a pitch and went up Siren - couldn't really see where it went. Lots of big gear needed - hexes, cams and 7+ wires. Pitches 2-4 are the best and it becomes very escapable from half way through P5 (e.g. Flash Harry, or Mordred).

FelixPeterken 19/Aug/13 2nd O/S

Did it all in trainers; forgot proper shoes!! Amazing position, and easy climbing if you are used to hanging on your arms. Take big gear.

seconded down climb (scarry but easy!) then climbed back out as the swell was so big the route was getting wave washed even though the tide was going out!

Climbed down the first pitch got wet and climbed back out the first pitch...

Lead pitches 1-5, reversed few meters and escaped up Mordred as it was getting dark.

Will be back to lead this! super fun, bit spicy on the 2 cave pitches but otherwise bomber holds on bomber gear! well worth it.

Needless to say the exposure was explosive and that wet look cave was wet. Brilliant route similar to Heart of Darkness in Pembroke but better. Did in 5 pitches (took 2.5hours)

Alan100 06/Jun/10 AltLd dnf

started traverse too high and gave up half way through our second pitch. considered going down further to try a lower line but didn't fancy it. Rock is soft and chossy - so fairly horrible to climb on unless you enjoy snapping handholds and unreliable gear. I'd recommend heading to Pembroke instead!

Reaffirming that HVS is still a pants-wetting grade. Traversing into the slimy cave on P3/4/5? was desperate, I was runout and had to scamper for the ledge. Following the next pitch was even knarlier. Truly emotional and well worth the effort.

We've completed it (and recovered the gear left in it on Monday)! Fantastic route, not sure whether it was the best I've done at Ogmore but certainly close.

haydng 06/Jul/09 AltLd dnf

That bit in the guidebook about the sea state should not be taken literally. Climbed around to the leader at the P4 belay then the waves started soaking the inside of the Wet Look (P3) belay. Ended up doing a tyrolean to the P4 belay and then escaping up Flash Harry. Fantastic route, just need to recover the gear we left behind.

Mindblowing. Incredible. Scary. Exposed. Steve wasn't feeling the love so we reversed it from the 2nd belay. Pulled off a jug when reversing, luckily fell onto a bomber thread. Will be back to do it justice sometime. Don't underestimate this, it is a beast!
