Done as one big pitch. E2,5b and not easy, though not sustained. The 5a pitch is worth 5b. A short crux on both pitches.

Savage climb, definitely E2, bouldery moves up blocky holds. Direct finish requires pure strength and a layback. There are big jugs at the top.. honest!
Chris Perry - AltLd - 04/Jun/12 with Matt Rust

Kit lead the first pitch/scramble. I lead P2 and P3 in one awesome pitch, with the direct finish. I'd say the route is more like E2/3 and definite 5b/c. P2 is hard leaving the groove and gaining the slab, probably 5b and quite runout. P3, 5b at least, maybe soft 5c. Felt loads harder than Kalahari anyway. Memorable route! Beware the gravel. E2 5b ***
rustaldo - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/12 with Kit Perry

gforce - Lead - 15/May/12 with Adrian

Lead all 3 pitches. 2nd is tricky, but a big camalot 4(?) would make it seem safer and less pumpy. Top pitch is a lovely, funky E1 5b pitch. Not bold or sustained enough to warrant E2 IMO. Great little route though!
Duncan Campbell - UKC - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Andy Vet

Andrew Sloan - 2nd - 12/May/12 with Duncan

E2
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 28/Apr/12 with John Brannock

Led pitch 3 after Martin ran 1 and 2 together. Really good route, sustained interesting climbing, more like E2?
Brannock - AltLd O/S - 28/Apr/12

P1 & 2 strung together

Led P2. Really good fun, my first experience of Yellow Walls. P2 is a delight on some cool features. Top pitch, also good (finished up crack), didn't have loads of gear. I thought belay on P2 was well left of that described / shown in NW Rock.

Lead pitch 1+2 together, Ste lead pitch 3. All the holds on pitch 2 were covered in dusty sepege stuff. Seemed harder than Creeping Lemma.
Glyn Davidson - AltLd O/S - 19/Apr/09 with Ste Davies

Lead first two pitches. 2nd pitch i found quite hard on less than perfect gear.
