Did it in gloves as it was very cold which was fine although Amen corner is noticeably harder than the rest of the route.

sprout3099 - 01/Jun/13 with Becky Wood

Went up for Kipling Groove but was far too windy, opted for this. First time climbing on Gimmer, so was naturally a bit underwhelmed by this. Not an especially great route, giving it three stars is a bit of a joke, I'd give it none.
Tom Last - AltLd O/S - 01/Jun/13 with Chester

Led P1,3,5-6. Good wandering mountain route.

Yes it is a severe - except for about 3m on Amen Corner, which is more like VS 4c.

Rained continuously from pitch 2 onwards. Fortunately, it turns out that Amen Corner and part of Green Chimney stay dry-ish in showers with strong westerlies.

Turned out to be not exactly the easy route to end the day, as intended: it's a complete sandbag, as most people seem to know!

great climb, one strenous crack but was going well until ropes jammed in crack - a bit of one arm hanging whilst I struggled to free them

Also with Dave Brown. Got it wrong at Amen Corner. No falls but several retreats and rests on rope. Finally got up using laybacks assisted by tight rope.

Hayley pitch 1 I lead pitches 2 - 6. Excellent cimb, particularly enjoyed the corner pitch. Combined with 1st 2 pitches of Bracket and Slab to make a good long route.

Poor route finding by the lead climber means I can't really claim to have done this route fully. However, it did mean I did my first HVS pitch!

Rambling route and Amen Corner too slippy and strenuous, probably 4c just for the 8ft of the corner. Lovely hot weather. Safest descent abseil back down to Ash Tree Ledge and then scramble back to gearing up area. Final steep scrambly bit often has a bit of tat to descend by abseil.

Made a pigs ear of Amen Corner - it was a cold, windy day and had to have multiple goes at it, eventually getting up it after shedding rucsac, jacket and fleece and enduring much piss-taking
