Great 3D climbing lower down. An exposed and scary time once you're on the Puro itself. A tough bouldery crux which Dunc led with aplomb.
ChrisBrooke - AltLd - 09/Jun/14 with Duncan Bell

Good fun and a nice summit. The hard sections are short but that makes the moves hard!
AJM - AltLd O/S - 14/Apr/14 with Charles Hubbard

Great route. Spooky abseil from the tower.

Very memorable
colin struthers - AltLd O/S - Apr/14 with mark hounslea

Great adventure. Led pitch 1,3,4,6,7,9. 6 abseils off the summit. Tricky first abseil as the ropes got twisted in the wind. Bit of a mission to unravel whilst getting battered by the wind. Freezing but a great experience to stand and climb on such a distinct feature.

tonanf - AltLd - Apr/12 with hayden, andy, Pep

Started up the direct corner, polished but with big holds. Lead P1, 3, and the top pitch. Very windy, watch your ropes on the ab - shorter the better.
farmus21 - AltLd - 19/Apr/11 with Owain, Sam Radcliffe

ended climbing the puro its self twice as the ropes got stuck on the ab.
samrad - AltLd - 19/Apr/11 with owen, james G

only managed the first 3 pitches due to a back strain :-(
eugeneth - AltLd - 17/Apr/11 with Owain

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 15/Apr/11

Led all except 1st pitch. Intense climbing, with the crux pitch at the top. Strong winds during abseil descents, make sure you use the ab station just below the summit of the Puro, as the team before us got their ropes stuck, using the stakes on the summit.
Ken Applegate - Lead - 09/Sep/10 with Hannah Evans

Awesome, led the '6b' at the top
mark20 - AltLd O/S - 06/Apr/10

The first full route we got on whilst at Riglos. Much looser in place than the route the following day (Mosquitos) but with a little more care it certainly made for a brilliant day out. Lended itself to a couple of fruity variations too as we were presented with options as to where to go after the 3rd pitch.
AMarchant - AltLd O/S - 15/Oct/09 with Anthony Eccles

highclimber - AltLd O/S - Sep/09 with Alex Marchant

did p1& p2 on a very wet day, the bottom direct (5c) pitches stayed dry.

Tombauer - AltLd - May/03 with James Gomez

Backed off 2 pitches from the top. Incredible exposure and oldish bolts made it feel harder.
