Did first 4 pitches as 2. Sharon led pitches 1 & 2, I did 3 & 4, then Sharon did the Arete pitch, and I did the top one. A great climb, and it looks like there's lots more at the crag lurking under the vegetation waiting to be done.

Enjoyed once we found the start. Must say the the approach was harder than the climb, although we did take the steepest possible!

Great day and a great route. A real variety of pitches and lovely exposure for the grade.
The start is a nightmare to find as its buried in ferns. Started up the wrong route by mistake...
Need to start about 75m right of the large scree slope and in line with the farm after scrambling up through vertical greenery. Took a tumble on the descent - crampons would have been helpful....

Nice route. Agree with last comment about getting to the crag. The Rockfax guide is reasonably good. Would add that once half way between the two wood plantations head up the small scree patch.

The route was not the best I've done for a classic rock route.
The approach description is not great it should read. Once you have crossed the stile head up the hill walking away from the crag. When you get about level with top of the two wood blocks on the left look for the faint path marked with a rock cairn, traverse under the crag until in-between the two wood blocks. Head up hill in the gully (its steep) when you reach the crag head right until you see a large boulder, a faint track should lead up left to the foot of the climb.

A worthwhile route - it's only taken me 20 odd years to get round to climbing it!!:-)

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!

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.

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.

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.
