Very soft at the grade, couple of simple moves through the sea of jugs. Waited a long time to do this route but have to say disappointed overall.
Zoomer - AltLd O/S - 23/Jul/14 with Joe dickens

Climbed as a three. Probably only 15 meters of climbing with the rest being very easy. Very well protected with nuts throughout.

Good mountaineering route. Bex led all the harder pitches.
asmith37 - AltLd O/S - 07/Jul/14 with Bex Leigh

Rather disappointed. A lot of large grass ledges - maybe we were off route. the leftwards traverse was off balancy. Interestingly enough it was very dry after a full days and nights worth of rain.

Wet and greasy after a full days rain and hanging mist in the morning. Pretty full on for a Severe - even in the dry. In the wet - a serious undertaking. I led all the pitches Ran a 30, 40, 30 and 60. plenty of opportunity for belays - ignore the guidebook pitches - 60m doubles help. Superb Route.

Led pitches 5, 6 and 7. Bits of good climbing in the first few pitches, but increasingly sparse protection as the route becomes less obvious, ending in a runout scramble to the top. Not really worth walking in only for this route, IMO.

Bit of an Epic of a day. Very damp and slimey. Would have carried on if it wasn't for the night time coming. Bit of an epic abbing off due to rope getting stuck, got it back eventually so we could get back down to the bottom. Fantastic climbing considering, would be a brilliant day in the dry.

Carmen led the 2nd pitch, I led the rest. A fantastic mountaineering route. Not sure where S 3c comes from, there are several sections of 4a, and one of 4b, but no more than severe over all.

Overhyped tosh. Contender for worst route I've ever done. In fact, it's worse than that. Scrambling is poo. The climbing pitches were smaller than most boulder problems. The rain added to the interest. Took a leisurely 4 hours including the walk-in and out. Went to Shepherd's after.
