Some excellent climbing on this route. Probably best to run pitches 1 & 2 together then ab off as the top pitch is rather a drag, as is the descent gully.

V good climb liked the start and run to second belay! Slight variation to make a 4b/4c move.

P1. Not sure if we did the proper route? Up through heather onto good rock and belayed higher up by a peg.. Nice rock.

Guidebook is wrong - we climbed the line shown in the topo as Crossover eg first pitch of Crossover and second (crux) pitch of Orange Outang

Lawrie Brand - Solo O/S - 12/Jul/11

Good fun route with good, committing holds up steep rock. I led p2 4b past the overhang. Midge infestation so we bailed after p2 and exited to the left to join the descent route (p3 looked like a long easy pitch up the rib to the top)

Led in one pitch. Just to reiterate previous comments. The topo in the guide book is wrong. follow the route descrition and head for the little overhang on P2. The bottom of the 1st pitch is getting a bit bushy

P1. Meirionnyd guide is deceptive as the route description and the diagram differ - we chose to believe the route description and climbed to the left on the second pitch, past the 'small overhang' which I guess is what gives the route its name. The guide diagram shows the second pitch to head rightwards - where we believe to be the second pitch of 'crossover' (and if you look at the picture all of a sudden this will make sense as the two routes will then indeed cross over!)

Horrible first pitch, very overgrown and no fun working through the heather. The route should be renamed 'Agent Orange Needed'.

Chris lead one and two together - resulting in a lot of rope drag for him at the crux. I lead the final easy pitch.

Definitely some sustained route planning and gear finding challenges in the middle pitch. Very much felt like a 'proper' mountain route, only smaller.

Wet and Rainy conditions made this entertaining. I led the 3rd pitch
