Soloed first pitch to the ledge then did the rest as one long pitch. Nice route. Hardest bit is getting off the ledge.

A bit of a graunchy, traditional Severe, with some rather tricky moves leaving the first big ledge! Definitely felt a bit mean at severe for that bit and a few moves up the groove higher up. Having said that the position and route as a whole was great.
JamieSparkes - Solo O/S - 13/Oct/13

I led the scrambly pitch 1 and the final pitch (interesting in a strong gusty wind). The middle pitch seemed rather tricky for Severe, both entering and leaving the scoop. I thought I might have climbed this 20 years ago, but pretty sure we did something different!

Indifferent first pitch. Great and exposed second and third pitches. Some of the moves towards the beginning of the second pitch definitely warranted more than Severe. Led P2 and P3 together.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 06/Jul/13

Thought the pull up the steep wall using the dodgy flake was rediculously hard for S at the start of pitch 2. Thought 5a at least unless you trust pulling on it on its left edge for the rock over move. Thought the shear force was too risky as it felt like it was moving.

cheeky - AltLd O/S - 07/Jun/10 with Mark Philipson

Good exposure and climbing. due to grade it felt easy and was enjoyable to take in surroundings and position, rather than desperately clinging on to rock face as per usual.

I think this is the one we did - it may have been B route, or may have been bits of several routes! I remember briefly trying Amen Corner as we passed and being grateful it wasn't on our route. And after descending the gully in the dark, I had to scramble up to Ash Tree ledge where we'd left our rucksacks, complete with head torches.
