Pretty stiff for VS! great route tho! lead the 5a second pitch
JamesWilliams - AltLd O/S - 04/May/14 with jamesA

Hidden - AltLd - 04/May/14

Led P1 - I think this would scare a 4b leader. My leader took a fall from the crux on P2 - a wide bridge beneath the crack isn't the best way to climb this pitch. Top tip - there's a bomproof runner on the crux but don't over extend it or the belayer will suffer. The "leaning crack" on P3 may have become wider through erosion since the guide was first written. It is now an offwidth in decaying quartzite. I found it a dirty struggle, but probably not quite 5a. If, sorry, when one of the flakes falls off it will become harder again.

I lead P1 and 2. Bulge on P2 is OK if you bridge and is well protected. Felix lead the short but awkward top 5a pitch - his first VS lead.

Lead P1+2. Hadn't read the description, so was just guessing the right line, but it's straight forward enough. Good route, especially stepping over to the belay at the end of pitch 2, what a position!

brilliant route neil chose to go direct over the bulge at 1st pitch crux making it closer to 5b, brilliant climbing throughout

Hidden - Lead - 19/Sep/12

Hard for its grade, the piton on the first pitch is good. And there are bomber nut placements on the hard bulge on the second pitch. Amazing climb in a great setting. Lovely place to have an epic.

jason reeve - AltLd - 15/Nov/11 with matt

Led up P1. Got within 2m of belay and didn't like the next moves up a wide groove and crack. Backed off as felt that if this was the easy pitch didn't want to try next pitches. Turned out I was off-route. Too late to do any more.

GarethHall - 2nd O/S - 24/Sep/11 with Marianne Khoo

I did pitcehs 1 and 3. Bloody shattered by this point and soooo thirsty given that we took no water down from the gear stash and it got roasting hot all day. Seems like the route doesn't get much traffic and so was pretty green. Pitch 3 is a strange one, need to trek up for miles on the top slope to find a belay.

Good route, full of character for the grade, led the second pitch, felt quite strenuous getting round the bulge, but well protected.
Neil Pacey - AltLd O/S - 26/Jun/11 with Tanya Savage

1st pitch lovely. 2nd very hard for grade - fell off crux (steep and failed to read it quickly enough). 3rd "pitch" a nasty, steep and brutish little corner, much cursing.
