Walk in 1hr 15min from Rydd Ddu, 1hr20min climbing, 1hr 15 walk out. Perfectly exploiting a weather window on an otherwise rainy day.

moved together as a three. B2s. pitched one section. the top section is very loose and as such doesnt really take any pro, i very nearly fell off when my foothold and hand hold collapsed. not cool. the rest as fun though!

Very windy (40mph?), great scramble but glad of the rope in the conditions. Moved together for the majority of the ridge, belaying where necessary to regroup for gear etc. lovely half day out.

Good, fun, shortish day. Lost a bet with Matt about how quickly he could run to the style by te wood when returning to the car. very annoying.

The crux isnt as bad as the book makes out. Lots of loose stuff though
ashsleight - Lead O/S - 17/May/13 with Student
Leading 2 students. Not technically difficult but deserving of the grade for the huge amount of loose rock.
Zoomer - Lead O/S - 17/May/13 with A Student
Climbed with one novice, mainly moving together/short roped but pitched a couple of sections. Escaped and finished in gully on R near to top. Our guidebook had it as grade 2 - grade 3 or 3s more appropriate. But, didn't find any problems with loose rock and it seems very escapable. A very nice mountaineering route.

Moved together for some of it, pitched the trickier sections. Still lots of dodgy rock to keep you focussed! What a cracking route this is! Lovely day and awesome sunset from the top! Had it to ourselves [again!]

This was a brilliant day out. Hardly saw a soul and had nice weather for it too. Took on pretty much all the pinnacles direct, including a very awkward downclimb on one of them. We read later in the guidebook that it recommends NOT going right over the top of that one! Awesome views of the Nantle ridge from the top. A great day out!

Very loose rock and an excellent feeling of exposure made this feel like a really good mountain day. With warm sunshine and cool breeze Mark and i made our way up the route. Stopping for lunch on the grass col before the heather gulley.
the broken rock made protection quite interesting but never too bad on the trickier sections. I would view this as a long moderate climb as opposed to a scramble, probably because of the loose rock and exposure on the steeper sections.
50m rope, middle Hexes, 1,2,3 cams, set of nuts.
Plenty of slings!
