Another one we didn't finish due to poor weather - an un-forecasted snow storm soaked the rock at the top of pitch 2. Again, cracking climbing up to there and well worth seeking out.
Rob84 - AltLd dnf - 16/Aug/14 with Mel

Last pitch made it. Suffered hot aches when the rain came in.

One point of aid. Cool route.
khalidq - AltLd O/S - 12/Aug/14 with Harriet Kirk

Led pitches 1,3,4 and 5. Pitch 4 feels harder than 6a onsight, especially through the crack section at the top.

ben.phillips - AltLd O/S - 20/Jul/14 with Mike Gallimore

Superb route! Seb led the first pitch and then I led pitches 2, 3 & 4, which were excellent! Pitch 4 was epic, very hard (for me) and a real challenge!!! Absolutely shattered after pitch 4, pitch 5 was an easy class 4 pitch, but still wanted to lead the last pitch.... Got to within 4 mtrs of the top but couldn't make the last few moves as my arms were completely shot, totally cramped up, forearms & hands..... Lowered off and Seb finished it and then I managed to second it. Next time........

Great route, the whole valley was in sun except the brevant which was shrouded in cloud. We didn't stick around in our shorts!
RobScarisbrick - 26/Jun/14

Hidden - AltLd - 24/Jun/14

We set off to do this route, but by miss reading the guidebook and seeing a line of bolts we thought we were doing the 6a start but instead the bolts went the other side of the gorge, right of the actual route, the bolts were good so we carried on to the top. 5 pitches, brilliantly bolted and a crux pitch of about 6b+. Must be very new though because it is not in the guidebook and also hasn't been logged as a new route at the guides office yet either!
Teappleby - AltLd - 23/Jun/14 with Anna Duckett

Pitches 1 and Crux (4)a very nice route.

jcw - 2014

Led P2,4,6. Crux pitch had really good climbing and the top pitch involves fantastic bridging!
MSchobitz - AltLd O/S - 2014 with jake

A superb route and very atmospheric in the drifting clouds. Pitches 1 to 3 are a breeze, 4 is very good value with the crux corner crack giving a good battle, pitch 5 has to be one of the best grade 5 pitches out there surely....
MrRiley - AltLd O/S - 07/Sep/13 with Mark Reid

P1,3 and final corner. Very good route.

Nice route for a quick hit from the Brevent lift. Led pitches 1 and 4 which are both given F6a... probably about right. Final corner pitch is excellent.

Ashley Hold - AltLd - Sep/12 with Torquil Bennett

Seemed hard at 6a, but we had rucksacs on and also it was 2300 - 2500m ... Very cold in the shade all the time, but a memorable and challenging place to keep your shit together. Crack pitch (L4?) was defo 6a+. I grabbed the draw.... and feel no shame.
Phil Murray - Lead dog - 26/Aug/12 with Liz

Excellent climbing at the grade. After a rather heightist slab pitch to start, two airy traverses and two fine cracks make for a classic outing. Led Ps 1,3,5.
Andy Clarke - AltLd O/S - 22/Aug/12 with Tim

Guided climb. Part of Jagged Globe alpine techniques course. We were climbing as a rope team with Tara. I lead 1,3,4,6 pitch.

Kirill - AltLd - 15/Jul/12 with Joe Toller

Cloudy and cold morning meant the route wasn't a circus... however the drummers suspended on a highline and wingsuited base jumpers whistling past turned into a more enjoyable type of circus!! Led 2/4/5. Last two are fantastic pitches, bottom 3 average.
