Soaking wet. Like shinning up a sandy drainpipe

quite loose
Dan Vaj - 2nd O/S - 13/Oct/13 with James Machaffie

There is a good nut and Friend high up to back up poor belay at end of p2 (apparently you can also keep going and do pitches 2 and 3 in one).

Gezzer - AltLd - 20/Aug/13 with Steve Burns

Amazing route. Ran pitches 2 and 3 together.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/13 with Chris Gooder

This may be a compelling line up a compelling cliff but the climbing isn't very interested. Shite rock, amazing looking crag. Utterly serious. Never going down there again. 1 star. Scariest abseil I've done...
James Oswald - 2nd - 04/Sep/12

P1 & 3. A very juggy romp on amazing rock.

Good route. Please to climb this after the epic last time we tried. Getting to the base of the route is the hardest part.

Similar to Wendigo but harder if anything - but still easy. Don't bother with rotting mess of pegs on 2nd belay, run P2 & 3 together. Worth the wait...
philhilo - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/10 with misha

awesome
phil64 - AltLd O/S - 26/Sep/10 with chris guest

Great route on the weirdest rock I've ever climbed on. Thought it had a harder crux than Wendigo but was less sustained - in fact it's an easy jugfest for most of the way, just don't fall off! I led P1 and Phil led P2 and P3 together, missing out the dodgy belay, which looked like it wouldn't support a fly: only one of the pegs looked just about ok, though there are back up threads available higher up, if you trust them. Spent forever waiting for this route as the team in front was very slow (we abbed in from the side and didn't see that they had abbed in directly just before us).

Fantastic!! lead P1 and 3, both easy but really bold. Andy Lead P2, harder, but less bold. P3 especially is superb.

Very atmospheric with a big feel to it. Committing feeling launching away from the peg on p2!

Led p.2. Had an excellent week at Gogarth. Originally, was heading for Alps but turned the car round onthe M6 and headed for Scotland as there had been a drought for months. Started to rain after a week so headed down to Wales.
