Lead all pitches. Brilliant route. 1st pitch, difficult bit at the start before the bulge then nice climbing to the top. 2nd pitch, walk across terrace to 3rd pitch. 3rd pitch seeping at the bottom, not nice, get past that and the dead tree (do not trust) and its all brilliant climbing. Steep but plenty of hand/ foot holds. Loved this route.

fun again, spent some time looking for possible escapes after P1.
lithos - Lead - 16/Aug/14 with steve j

Simon P1 me P2, cracking route, with both pitches being very different. Slabby on p1 and steep on p2
Puma - AltLd - 16/Aug/14 with Simon C

Delightful first pitch with excellent nut placements. The tree on the second pitch is dead and moves alarmingly, I think it is barely attached to the cliff.

I lead pitch 1 (4b) slabby, all there but hard start (4c?)with little protection then eases. Deb lead pitch 2 a more traditional pitch finishing up a steep crack, again all there but a few committing moves.

I led p1, chris led p2. Lovely climb, really enjoyed both pitches and climbed in the beautiful sunshine too, although currently paying for lack of sun cream!

2 contrasting pitches with a 'walk' in the middle (did not enjoy that bit at all) brilliant climbing

minaturechris - AltLd O/S - 06/May/13 with Stacey

Led pitch 2 on chilly day, wet at bottom of crack below tree. Glad I didn't lunge for the tree - though it appears healthy, it's nearly detached! There must be some deep (but thin!) roots in the crack, but the whole thing moves, visible roots and all... Great climb though

Xlent slab pitch followed by a corner on good rock with a challenging crack crux finish, the guide book description of "just keep trucking" at the top is a very appropriate piece of advice.

virtualjacki - 2nd dnf - 21/Oct/09

Lovely climb with two contrasting pitches - the first all delicate friction, the second brute force. Second pitch looks more difficult from the bottom than it actually is!

I did first & second pitch in one, dont ask me why, I could have just seconded all the way. Found it pretty hard in places. Steve did second pitch and I strugled to follow. To avoid wet area I had to lunge at tree, then found it difficult work in the crack.

Lovely first two pitches (that should be linked) on wonderfully pocketed and protected wall. Final tow pitches (again should be linked) not so tough as bomber gear and scarey bit short lived. Worthy of the stars.
