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

Me - p1, Martin P2 Pleasant first pitch and a really cool last pitch.
Mike 1st, me second pitch. Nice route, not the worst run out ever.
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.

I led P1 good start and finish to route, bold on P2.
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.
|Simon Allcock||07/Aug/13||Lead O/S||
moves fun, more so on rib on p2, limited gear
Excellent finishing rib bold and exposed!
Led pitch 2. Thoughtful and challenging, but there was normally a chance to stand and think.
led P2. All very nice. quite bold and exposed at the top of P2

Really good, move at start was okay then all pretty sustained above. Exciting finish.
Lovely climb, nice moves at the start with a good finish.
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.
|Chris Sansum||15/Aug/10||Lead O/S||
pierce lead 1st pitch and i lead 2nd pitch. felt quite spaced out between gear on 2nd pitch after the break! Also half a house brick sized rock fell off hitting me on the back whilst belaying first pitch, very painfull!
|Different Steve||12/Jun/10||AltLd O/S||
Led P1 - hard & well-protected at the bottom. Easier but basically no gear after the crux

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.
lead second exposed pitch, abosoulute cracker!
Absolutely awesome finish
|Jim Slater||14/Apr/07||AltLd O/S||
Excellent finish, exposed.
Cleaned, pruned and shunted

2nd pitch is bloody hard.
