Led P1 - messed up the crux. The rest was pretty smooth apart from slight flutters at the P3 crux. P2 felt soft. Fun route, well worth it - just under 3 hours round trip. Damn nettles.
Also we only realised afterwards that we shouldn't have been there. Why call it "summer season" if you can't climb it in summer? Bizarre. We really wanted to respect the access restrictions but they don't make it easy. budchawla - AltLd - 29/Jul/14 with Alexander Orlov

actually fluffed the crux on the first pitch - putting that down as a warm up! lead p2+3 clean. great route, great views. p2 i'd say was only a 6b+ if you climb above the shelf that runs level with the terrace - very trick balance traverse then. easier if you step across to the break earlier.

Peeled off the tricky bulge crux on P1 and fell in the chimney last move of P2 (luckily leader clipped first bolt on Sunsations to protect this). Awesome route though, I'll be back. Great views, good exposure and good abseil off too!
DGreg - 2nd dog - 15/Jun/14 with luke harvie
Perry lead this and I came up 2nd with Zane. The first pitch (Missing first bolt belay) Wasn't too bad at all but the 2nd crux pitch I REALLY struggled with and ending up pulling on gear. It was late so we Abseiled down from the terrace. One for another day!!

Lead first two pitches clean, backed off the third due to time.
Kap - Lead dnf - 12/Apr/14
Led the first pitch, messed up the crux sequence and peeled off, rest of it was clean. Mark led the last two pitches in damned good style. 6b+ and 2 stars seems about right. Fine climb, especially worth doing if you add a pitch-black ab-off with headtorches left at the bottom of the crag ;)

Lead the easy pitch (2) having done it before I let Remus have the good ones. Had work for 9 hours and finished at 10 pm. Picked Remus up at 11 and started by just gone 11.30 and finished by a tidy 3 a.m up and down. Went off route on the first pitch which resulted in some adventures bramble bashing in the dark.. interesting lead. Night climbing is the best way to do routes for sure, although footwork is fairly tricky. Nice calm leads from Remus all the way. another 10 hours work starting early this morning... :/

Good fun. Quite cruxy on all 3 pitches (did it in four). Think 6b, 6b+,6b+ is fair. Both the 6b+ pitches had their cruxes on traverse sections, although the final pitch well-protected for the second at that point. Both took some working out! The final pitch had a bit of a runout at the end with 2 rusty pegs providing some mild comfort...
DrGav - AltLd O/S - 16/Apr/11 with Dave
Surprisingly tough. F6b+ seems fair. P1 was interesting and fun and P2 can be a little sketchy moving up to the belay stance. P3 took focus; no ring anchors on the rock, rather topping out on to the grass to a good tree anchor - results in a substantial run out from the last bolt, through two rusty pegs, and up on to the grass.

Fantastic Climbing - dry and almost sunny. weirdly the first pitch felt the hardest. Had an interesting moment with Alex falling just before the pinnacle - fortunately he left in the draw first!! having a slack belay I headed out away from the pinnacle. Great moves on all of the pitches - exposed but not in a bad way. Abbed down in 6! as we onlt had one 50meter rope, very slick though and got down in under half an hour.

Awsome route. All pitches good and all have an exciting crux move or two ... the traverse at the top of the corner on pitch three is especially memorable
