Tyrolean traverse was fun.

Continuation of Label Virginie. The Tyrolean was probably the highlight of the route!
Ken Applegate - AltLd - 07/Aug/15 with Andy Barker

Mistakenly abseiled off the wrong side of the Clocher after Label Virginie. Then mistakenly climbed back up it via the 6a variation (hard in approach shoes). The traverse was fun, especially the tyrolean and taking my rucksack off halfway up the final chimney.

Did the Clocher but not the Clochetons
Tony Ryland - Lead dnf - 30/Jul/15 with Jonathan Davies

Pretty chilled route. Climbing is all very straightforward apart from the slippery final chimney! Tyrolean was good fun. Took about 2h45.

Really cool route, more abseiling than climbing though! Long walk in as the lifts are closed for the off season.

Missed out the last needle as Chris' feet were disintegrating but still an amazing day out - did the optional tyrolean traverse.

Great fun, the tyrolean was novel if a bit short. Could be very time consuming if there wasnt a party ahead to catch the rope.

Got lost on the walk in, did the first pitch, abbed off the wrong way and had a terrifying experience with a dodgy anchor then backed off due to bad weather
