An awesome outing up another of RHRW's lovely chimneys. Friendly and well protected for a route on this cliff!

Pitch 1&2 apparently I did a slight variation on the start of P2 which Al thought was harder than the original, I thought it was ok ...

another great climb on RW. In 2 pitches is the best way, belaying at BRH. Led P2.

Did in 2 big pitches, I led P1 to the Blue Remembered Hills Belay, Bubbles Led to the top. Prob 5a, 5b for the pitch grades. First time on Red Walls. Keen for more... I think! Soft E2 (but serious!)

First ascent since the bans came off, very dirty. More like e2, very good though.

Derek Ryden 28/Sep/13 AltLd O/S

Better and slightly easier than Red Wall

Led p1 and an extended p3 from the lower sloping ledge - Toms lead on the main pitch and he had used every runner above a size 5 wire by that point! P2 even to the higher ledge is more like 35-40m than the 50m quoted in North Wales Rock. E2 5b, we thought a bit more sustained than Red Wall but no move as hard as the Red Wall crux. Good climbing, good route!

Awesome route, quite serious but only worth E2.

Andrew Sloan 10/Aug/12 AltLd O/S

Led 1st and 3rd pitches.Beautiful rock but no idea how it gets E3 as was a pretty soft 5b. I've done far more demanding E1s.

Very easy although comprehensive guide book made no sense - go down and left???? Up and right from 15m up Escape Route. Did technical crux through bulge. Misha the rest.

Misha 25/Sep/10 AltLd O/S

First route on Red Wall proper. Amazing rock formations giving interesting 3D climbing, never hard but fairly sustained. A bit of a jugfest really which at times felt like a 5+ at the wall! Not a great deal of gear though. Led P2, though I think Phil ended up leading the first 10m or so of the 'official' P2, which included the technical crux. No way is this E3 - easy E2. Thought it had an easier crux than Red Wall but was more sustained. It's not the grade that counts though but the experience.

belayed in the wrong place twice, and found it quite run out coming up to the corner, easy climbing tho, was nice.
