Climbed in order to clean the route. The first pitch, which was the worst, is now pretty much clear of veg, which should also help a bit with the dampness. The remaining pitches were also cleaned, though they were nowhere near as bad. The walk off was also cleared by Huw and Mandy a few weeks back. Go climb!

Just a little damp & JT took a factor 2 fall around the 3rd pitch... 1st Classic Rock climb of the week & not looking too great.

In a 3 hour dry spell during the monsoon that was this w/e. P1 started nice went really horrid on filth. All the rest fine and mostly dry. Fun traverse and arete pitch. Started to rain as coiling rope at top :-)

Lovely day, with only us on the cliff. Ran 1st 2 pitches together without realising. Khalid/Em got off-route on pitch 4, which helped us stay on track (!). Enjoyable climbing and not too hard. If only the arete (pitch 5) was longer...

Seemed a bit overrated and over graded, tbh. Only one other party on the entire crag though - amazing, given the weather and the number of classic climbs.

An hour walk in; would have been easier to walk straight up from the track; that's how we came back. Fun route in a beautiful setting at the head of a quiet valley

Fairly easy, nice traverse on Tea ledges (keep going left to pass under overhung arete - instinct is to climb diagonally left/upwards to the skylight). Awful walk in was desperate! Ignore upper traverse path, traverse with the fence above plantation and hike directly up to foot of climb. Take a trowel if doing any other routes.

First multi pitch not difficult and plenty of gear placements the traverse is most exciting section with a wide bridge over a long drop.

Horrible walk in (who on earth can do it in 30 mins as per Classic Rock?) was made up for by lovely views, and red kites circling the belay ledges on the thermals. Led pitches 1 and 2 (as one pitch) and 4 and 5.

Done on the club Burns Night weekend when it was still held at the hut (this was the first one I went to and the first time I had been to the hut). Phil S / Adrian led all but the last pitch, which Phil S let me lead. The route was a bit wet but I don't recall it being particularly cold despite it being January. It did take a long time though as we were climbing in a three and Ken and Jo were in front of us.
