First 3 pitches only (finished up Excalibur). The corner is amazing!

Led pitch 1 in the drizzle with frozen hands. Lovely climbing. Rained again on pitch 3. Missed out the top pitch on the upper tier to switch to another climb.

I had P2+4. P2 corner pitch was absolutely awesome, 3 stars. Rest of route however not so classic, but worth it for 2nd pitch.

Guide book is a wee bit unclear. Top pitch direct is the most obvious continuation of the route: through the overhang at the obvious weekness and straight up the steep crack above (Vs 4c!). Couldn’t find the normal finish, round the corner and up the grassy ramp to the right?

did variation final pitch - up the wettish roof to the left - added a bit of spice at the end!

Odd pitches. Chimney pitch wet. Did most of the direct finish except the 1st 2 moves in the groove which were also wet.

Fiona Reid 03/Jun/11 AltLd O/S

Initial chimney wet, but wet stuff easily avoidable. Led even pitches. Did all but first part of of the direct finish (def. VS), had to avoid the start due to soaking wet dripping holds. Lovely route although pitch 3 is a bit of a let down.

Well, its given VS 4b in the guide, I see no need to argue with that. The VS leaders Rock Idol, the middle groove pitch is steep, intimidating, but turns out to be easy. Brilliant climbing.

Pitch 4 is definately 4c to get established on the upper wall.
