Getting a bit dirty. Could do with more traffic because its a really nice route. Sketchily traversed off instead of the doing the long scramble to the top.

Not great. Dirty and messy and an awful lot of shitty scramble to finish. Not much gear in places

Route a little wet and mossy. Took a while to secure a good belay at the base of the climb. Straight forward enough climb, but first pitch had no gear until 20 metres (that behind a very dodgy flake), first good gear at 25 metres. Second pitch protected fine except first couple of moves off from the belay. The scramble above was wet, so tried the traverse off (on belay) after the second pitch: This was very serious, wet, unsafe, committing, scary, and not recommended at all. (Perhaps we didn't find the right traverse line!)

Climbed last pitch without ropes but it got a little difficult in places due to damp rock and vegetation!
Jack Shepherd - AltLd O/S - 25/May/09 with Tristam Kaye / Tom Hyde

1st two pitches excellent. Top 60m grotty horrible & frightening. Nevertheless worth doing if the queue on the Buttress is too long.

Thought pitch 2 was serious owing to poor pro.
