Solid gold. Middle pitch is one of the best I've ever been on.

Martin Haworth - Lead O/S - 05/Sep/13 with Henry Haworth

Led P2. At last. Totes amazeballs, although no pushover at the grade. James eschewed the usual finishing chimney for the much greener, harder and unclimbeder crack to the left. Fun times.
victim of mathematics - AltLd O/S - 10/Aug/13 with James Oswald

Very good, lead P1 and p3. Colin did p2. I went up the wrong chimney at the end which was quite desperate, less solid and not very good.
James Oswald - AltLd O/S - 10/Aug/13 with Colin Angus

dan gibson - AltLd O/S - 25/Jul/13 with helen gibson

great climb, thought the crux on second pitch was 5b.

Second pitch has a gnarly start but you are rewarded with a fantastic groove above.

JezH - AltLd O/S - 25/May/13 with Ellie

Did Pitches 1 and 3. Crux pitch is the 2nd, and about half way up in a sustained crack. Good route. I would avoid the chimney finish on P4 as it is honking!
Chris Perry - AltLd O/S - 05/May/13 with Matt Rust

A good line and good solid rock. Gogarth is the better route and a better experience though. Lead P2 and P4 the chimney, not sure which was better.
rustaldo - AltLd O/S - 05/May/13 with Kit Perry

Led crux pitch this time.

Ollie B - AltLd O/S - 15/Apr/12 with L.Fleming

Split pitch 2 as too much ropedrag and not enough quickdraws. Led 1st part of pitch 2 and pitch 3. I thought crux bridging move on initial corner of pitch 2 was very delicate and would give it 5b.Sensational route, beautiful day.
Andrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 28/Mar/12 with Steve Grove

First route at Gogarth. An interesting approach. Had too many cloths on and fried alive leading the 2nd pitch which servilely limited my enjoyment. Plus I seemed to be having a bad gear day. Unfortunately not the classic experience I was expecting. Give it time maybe one to come back to?
