In one pitch (48m-ish) this feels harder than the strand. Brilliant duo. Watch out for some loose spikes.

Led P1. Stunning situation and weather.
Stig - AltLd O/S - 17/Sep/11 with james oswald

Amazing route. James lead the 1st (slightly harder) pitch. Got very psyched out by the looseness of the block at the start of the first pitch. Then started to rationalise it but I was pretty scared for most of the second pitch. Awesome hard crux move though! Horrible hanging belay...

C coldwell-storry - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Iron Mike, rob lay

Not to be recommended as 2 pitches!
GPN - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Ian Lawton

A very good route. P1 is an initial jugfest which gets stiffer towards the belay. P2 is harder than it looks as there isn't much for the feet. Led P2. Done on the Saturday of the CC aspirants meet.
Misha - AltLd O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Gavin

1st :) loose flake???? Maybe if your the world's biggest punter!
Ewan Russell - AltLd O/S - 10/May/11 with Connor

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 10/May/11

Led throughout. First Gogarth experience, complete with retreat from pumpout, grabbing of loose blocks, hopeless gear options and mamouth dodgy flake. Ramp on pitch two was 'entertaining' too... Can't wait to hit Main wall, I'm a convert!!

Pippa - AltLd - 01/May/11 with Jon

Lead 2nd pitch, very unusual (in a good way). Looks easy but lack of footholds below the ramp makes it tricky. Much more logical link-up than doing the routes independently.

Large flake on 1st pitch seems a bit dubious, avoid placing cams behind it. Also there is a loose spike or two on the belay/beginning of the 2nd pitch. Overall god route though!

melonmike - 2nd O/S - 09/Aug/09 with Dave Morse

P2. Wouldn't argue with E1 5b, which seems to be the consensus, but also happy to take the E2 tick as per new Gogarth guide. Only one pokey move on last pitch but the whole route is sustained 5b. Great climb.
