A classic line joining and then following the prominent left facing corner high on Craig Llywelyn.

Got 2/3 of the way up pitch 1 to find that what looked like the crux was wet and slimy. So after some dithering, lowered off (free gear available for the next to climb it). Did enough to want to get back and complete it!

Robbie got his head down at the bottom whilst me and Giles set off for a final rapid ascent of the day. The third pitch was very memorable - epic.

lead P1 and P3 ... pretty exciting route , hardest lead ive done yet (high end VS id say ) tricky move before belay spot on P1 and crux on P2 was a hard one ! leading P3 was lovely great gear and awesome exposed climbing , we cleaned as we went along , was somewhat green not bad anywhere though. Its a memorable big mountain route and very sustained ...definitely an experience ! not totally worth three stars in my opinion

Awesome clean climb! Largish Loose block on the third pitch but can go round it, precarious decent!

We were going to do Acheron. But Matt climbed up the right hand side of the slab as he didn't fancy the vegetated left hand side of the slab. When I was leading 2nd pitch, I thought the descriptions didn't add up. After climbing up and down the slab on the right hand side a few times, Matt had a look at his Rock Fax topo photo on his phone and realised we were on Doom instead of Acheron, which made loads of sense. What Matt should've done was to stay left on the initial slab for a bit longer and then take a right. Mistake easily done when 2 routes are so close together. The pull over the slight overhanging corner on P2 was quite good. Bit wet on the slab on P3 but the crucial holds were positive and good gear. Dry day but cool for May.

I did pitch 1, Kevin ran 2 and the lower has of 3 together due to missing the rotted peg, I finished to top. Good, varied climbing, requiring a thoughtful approach. Quite run out in places. We both felt p2 was the crux - 5a?

Adventurous feel with a fair bit of gardening en route. The belay peg at the top of P2 mentioned in the climbers club guide is no longer usable - just a stub. I continued on, combining pitch 2&3, and finding a good stance on the final slab (approx 50 mtrs combined).

Dry but a lot of veg. Maybe 3 stars if it was clean. Very tough in the wet I should think. http://youtu.be/CKjT_GF7MOI

My first outdoor fall on pitch 2! Felt pretty tough for the grade with a lot of loose rock and some jungle bashing!

This is simply a fantastic route in a beautiful valley: sustained at a decent VS standard on excellent rock for 120 metres. A gem.
