From the stance of Guytha climbs up and left easily to a niche. Move right with difficulty onto an exposed prow. Scary, unprotected moves up this to a welcome finishing hold.

Ticklists: Ultimate HVS ticklist.

Led P1 - no real surprises. Gear spaced but steady climbing. Pitch 2 very different but awesome!

Eagertom 05/Sep AltLd O/S

Awesome move on pitch 1, second pitch bolder but still comfortable bar rope drag.

Top pitch. Definitely not in nick - muddy holds and a lot of loose, sketchy blocks. Meandering line with only a few feet of 'proper' climbing up the rib, which is pleasantly exposed and has a serious feel. Does not warrant 2 stars.

P2. Crying out for a bit of a clean, but made it feel more adventurous. Top section onto the rib is just blimmin awesome!

Found this tough on the traverse right and the arete near the top. Nice route though.

Led p1. Excellent route.

Tom's first multi-pitch - he found the height a bit gripping! gear was quite sparse so a cool head required, although the climbing was steady. Nice moves and positions out right and then up the finishing rib.

P2. Stepped up to the wrong tiny ledge, as per bpmclimb below. Spent ages trying to decide whether to go for it, but managed to down climb in the end and get back on route.

Led pitch 2. Thoughtful and challenging, but there was normally a chance to stand and think.

I stepped "up and right to a tiny platform" but didn't find a peg; then realized I hadn't gone far left enough and was too near the rib. Felt committed, so continued boldly up a very shallow groove. Felt about E3 5b. Maybe I climbed bits of Gospel: According to Themeninblack - not sure. Very scary, anyway.

After a bit of a false start by Matt I took over for the top section which is fine climbing in a very exposed position. The holds are all there, but you need to work out the moves before comitting.
