after much discussion about how scary it sounded we ended up committing!! Wasnt as bad as guide makes out to be but was still pretty mega! lead P2 and 5 (ben strung 3&4 together) climbing got abit dull after pitch 3 but still worth it!

Got the chimney pitch. Not as scary as the guide makes out but fully out there. Good route Shame the meat of its at the bottom.

Finished up last pitch of gogarth. Would make sense to link pitches 1 and 2 but the belay allowed for some great pics!

One star here you kidding? Amazing route, I lead pitch 1 and 2 in one, no point in the first belay. John dealt with the chimney which is much better than it looks. You don't have to touch much of the loose stuff. Great couple of days

Long day! Super tired by the end of it, maybe not the best route to try having not cimbed for a while!

Top route, great effort by owain. The crux is great and the chimney interesting. Worth E3 in my book.

Tried to run 1+2 together but went a bit high on the initial traverse. Placed too much kit and had to belay half way along p2. This meant I had to lead the chimney, a harrowing experience!

Tried to avoid the wetness at the end of pitch 2 (we only did 1&2) and came off, used the holds in the roof and it was easy...shame.

Rained off the last pitch so didn't complete the route but had done the meat of it. A lifeboat came across to make sure we were ok once we had abseiled to the bottom again!

fennerz - Lead O/S - 02/May/09 with Ed Booth
led all the main pitches and tom led the top pitch of gogarth to finish. Super greasy at crux, but amazing route. psyched for the e5's!
Ed Booth - Lead O/S - 02/May/09 with Fennerz
1st, 2nd and fourth of five pitches. Found the 5c crux pitch hard and took several reverses before unlocking it. Overhanging chimney/crack must be really scary on the lead and the lats pitch felt no push over either. A good day- pleased to get out depsite ominous weather it was ultimately beautiful.

Spanked! Fell leading traverse, finished pitch, but neither of us fancied the chimney.

Rested on pitch 2. Unfortunately from pinnacle I went too vertical at first (burning out on E5 ground!). Need to keep traversing left...
