In 6 pitches (I combined guidebook 1+2). I led the start, the slab, the neat bit and the easy chimney (the VS chimney was wet), C led the rest including the bracket. Super route, it's taken 3 visits to find it without a queue, this time the whole crag was practically empty!

A few tricky moves and a fantastic setting make for a top class route. Ran out of light after a late start and had to ab off from pitch 4. Definitely work a return visit.

Ab'ed off the end of the third pitch (just above the bracket) to avoid being benighted.

interesting route, thankfully improves drastically after the first (1+2) pitches - these are horribly polished and are presumably used as an access route to the halfway ledge. We did the left hand chimney variation, which was quite frankly horrific, full of wet green slime. at least there is plenty of gear to alleviate the tension. felt like HVS in these conditions! a good route but not a 3 star classic.

in 4 pitches. big boots, rain and only 5 nuts made for a slippery adventure
tomhull - AltLd rpt - 01/Aug/12 with martin davies

Great route, I lead bracket pitch and top pitch (did in 4). Minimal gear (had 5 nuts + slings...), big boots, proper raining on last pitch all made for bit of an adventure. Shins scratched up from all the crawling, turns out wet trouser material is more grippy on wet rock than B2's!

Did the optional VS start which was very pleasant climbing. Picked the wrong spot to belay and ended up re-belaying down on the ash tree slabs ledge. Helen lead the superb bracket pitch. Did the MVS narrow chimney optional pitch which is exposed and superb. Helen lead the final slab pitch. Fantastic climb; can't wait to get back back to this crag.
climbinmunkey - AltLd O/S - 24/Apr/11 with Helen

Led 6 pitches, 1&2 and 5&6 would have been better combined. Considered myself of the stout variety and chose the easy right hand chimney. I hand traversed on the bracket pitch (no-one else seemed to that day) which felt a little out there, does the large block seem worryingly loose? Not great when you gear is a large nut behind it! The final slab was superb.

Should be called Bracket and Thrutch. Bracket is a novel traverse. Left hand Chimney (the oft dodged crux) was easily 4B/C, if done, it comfortably makes the climb HS. Grunted and thrutched up it as tradition dictates and loved every heave! Bring your tweeds.

Lost my old hex - stuck. Dropped my camera 4 pitches. A few moves below me Graham managed to get a finger to it while it flew through the air but could not catch it.It burst open on the ground and exposed the film so I lost the photos of Steve Bowra on Tough-Brown Traverse on Lochnagar. These were the last photos I took of him.

Might have been having a bad day, but reckon it's a bit disjointed and overrated. The upper chimney is particularly unpleasant...
Jamie B - AltLd - Sep/97 with James Hodkinson

At the top of pitch 4 we went left instead of right, so that we accidentally did pitches 4 and 5 of 'B' Route (S**)
