A great route.
Lumbering Oaf - 2nd O/S - 15/Sep/14 with James Hoyes, Rach Batt

Very good. Abbed in from frontline due to tides. Lead P2. Had to rest on P1, thought the bulge was well protected but nails.

I led P2. Found the grades on this buttress a bit more in line with expectations. Abbed in straight to the stance at mid-high tide - ok with calm seas, but make sure to kick off the wall for the undercut abseil!
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 11/Sep/14 with Alex Winter

Took first pitch. First route of the trip that felt easy for the grade. Great route. Love the finer grain granite on this buttress.

getting to the start is maybe the hardest move
Marti999 - AltLd O/S - 17/Aug/14 with Guy Buckingham

Low crux, best belay in town. Lead P2, nice and easy way out.
Stroppy - AltLd O/S - 03/Aug/14 with Alex Thomson, Sam Husband

I thought the crux was tough and hence it deserves the E1. Awesome route though and a cracking belay stance.
Sam Husband - 2nd O/S - 03/Aug/14 with Alex Thomson, Ed

P1. "Mount the bulge with difficulty" Yup. Then breath in and enjoy the rest of what is a wild trip Dont stray left under the bulge, despite it being tempting.

Fantastic! Led the crux pitch (which was very greasy at the crux).
cem - AltLd O/S - 04/Sep/13 with Vaughan Hewett

Justin Shiels - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/13 with Chris

Led P2 after backing off the start of P1. Slightly unsettlingly greasy, but brilliant climbing.
victim of mathematics - AltLd O/S - 20/Sep/12 with James Oswald

After Colin backed off the first pitch I lead through. Great crux sequence if initially a bit baffling (good crimp on right). Amazing stance after P1 on the ledge. Don't run the pitches together!

Alan Dixon - Sep/12 with Anthony Dixon

Repeat climb (seconding the crux pitch), after failing to get a clean ascent on an attempt a couple of days before. Found the moves over the bulge really tough. Brilliant climbing, great rock, superb position.
Jim Slater - AltLd rpt - 22/Aug/12 with Graeme

Led pitch 1. Stunning crux sequence, found fairly hard overall, probably could be run together with pitch 2 fairly easily. Top climb :)

Awesome! Dan's lead. Touch & go as the holds were bit damp.
Alex Thompson - 2nd O/S - 30/Aug/11 with Dan Lane

In one pitch, crux felt hard but probably due to greasy holds. great route.

Lead Pitch one (5b) Awkward moves up to jugs with easier exposed moves traversing right to a fantastic undercut stance. mediocre second pitch.
