Puma** HVS 5a
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.

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

Led p1. Excellent route.
BeccaSnowden - AltLd O/S - 19/Apr/14 with Tom

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.
The Ivanator - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/13 with Ric

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.

Fred_Richard - AltLd - 02/Jun/12 with Pete

Really good, move at start was okay then all pretty sustained above. Exciting finish.
Dave Ing - Lead O/S - 06/Apr/12 with Todd

Lovely climb, nice moves at the start with a good finish.
TDembrey - 2nd O/S - 06/Apr/12 with Dave

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.

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!
jon_gill1 - AltLd O/S - 13/Jun/10 with pierce ferris

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.
