Pitches 1-3. Got stalled by 2 Slovenians finishing The Angel's Eye (belaying on the in-situ nut), and decided to finish up the last pitch of the Angel's Eye, since it was getting dark.Chris Sansum - Lead rpt - 11/Jan/14 with Richard Snow
Shat myself on P4 when all the gear came out before the down-climb as well as most of it around the corner. Think there is a dodgy peg after the down-climb and just by the first small gap.

colinthomson5 - AltLd dnf - 24/Sep/13 with James Cullen
Great route, lack of a decent diagram in the old guidebook didn't help. Bit of route finding beta from an experienced local compenasated.
Lead P1, P3, P5 (split P4 into 2 to avoid rope drag and aid communication).
By the time Roger had taken a rather higher and much harder variant line on P2, the 5a pitch seemed easy. Actually, it WAS easy, only 4b? No idea where 5a comes from. P4 seemed harder (again, partly as Roger took a higher harder line), but even the on-route bit seemed like 5a.

Awesome climb. Lead p1 and p3. Took a large whipper on pitch 4 due to wetness and I snapped a hold off :S worth it though. Brilliant climb
McKEuan - AltLd - 09/Oct/12 with Tom Adams
Led P2 and P4. What a great expedition! Lived up to my expectations. P4 had quite an interesting crux, huge rope drag by the end of the pitch.
Poco Loco - AltLd O/S - 22/Sep/12 with Robert
Absorbing. A summer spent on the the new quarry traverse at Avon meant none of the moves felt too hard but the situation and rope work were not trivial. Full marks to James for leading pitches 2 & 4!

Hidden - 2nd β - 03/Sep/12
Led pitches 2 and 4. Found the last pitch tricky, easily felt 5a. The crux move is hard to protect for the second too, and what I did put it lifted out later.

Me 1, 3 Phil 2, 4. * Phweew * You know you have been on a climb after this - one of those its all there somewhere climbs, and some superb positions. p3 Different but not that hard - low 4c rather than 5a, p4 seemed more like 5a.

led P2 and 4. quality route and a total must for anyone wanting an adventure. questionable whether there was a 5a move but some of the commitment required makes it feel harder.

Awesome climb, never felt particularly difficult but very intimidating, especially pitches 3 & 4. Down climbing was scary but a great experience.
dawesbub - 2nd O/S - 21/Aug/11 with Big Lee
What an awesome route. Big exposure with plenty of quality climbing. Only downside was that we hit a lot of traffic coming up Angle's Eye which delayed things.
Big Lee - Lead O/S - 21/Aug/11 with Stephen Dawes
Josh lead pitch 1 and 3, I led pitch 2 and 4. Rain and lack of backroping know-how sent us up last pitch of Angel's Eye instead of 4th pitch.

A nice adventure on quite damp rock, with Gary and Rich following us along it. Always good fun. For once we couldn't be bothered to do anything afterwards, after spending a bit of time freeing a stuck abseil rope.

In the heat I thought the 1st pitch of LH Route was as hard as anything later! The guidebook makes the route sound more complicated than it actually is. The last pitch is superb, intimidating and with lots of good climbing.

Lead first and second pitch,second 3rd and 4th. 4th pitch has a scary 6m down climb for second if the lead climber hasnt put any gear in untill the bottom.

Started up Central Route as LH Route occupied. Traverse of P2 was straight forward enough. However, second slipped just after leavign belay, and took a long slow fall as the slack in the system was used up. Cuts, grazes and a bashed ankle, but otherwise okay. She was lowered to the ground, and I retrieved the gear on a top rope rope from above. Shame not to complete, but there's always next time.

Had led most of the pitches on a previous occasion. This is a real classic, following an unlikely line across a sheer face. It feels like an adventure, with upclimbing, downclimbing, traversing, unusual rope techniques etc. A great climb for photos.
The pitch which was supposedly 5a was easy! The following pitch was harder.
