Just too tired to pull through the roof after four days on. Pulled ropes, rested and eventually worked out a more techy and less streny way to do it. Really enjoyable.

6 hour ascent! Only led 1st 7m pitch in the end. Started up 3rd pitch but exhaustion and exposure were getting to me so I retreated and Ed took over. Great climbing but an unnerving setting, especially not being able to see your partner a lot of the time.

intimidating and damp crossing the crevasse but luckily a breeze got up meaning great conditions for the crux pitch. really enjoyed it, not as hard as the reputation suggests, and also nowhere near as hard as kafoozalem (thank god). a great journey into and out of a stunning zawn.
ferdia - AltLd O/S - 02/Aug/15 with Andy
lead 2 and 3, after a fully fledged epic on first attempt. E3?!
Alex moore - Lead - 17/Jul/15
Mega epic on trying to lead crux pitch on first attempt as the rain came in hard! horrible retreat into zawn ensued.
Back to the van for a cheese sandwich and a can of man-up then followed Alex up 2/3

Absolutely amazing climbing, but that crux is hard! I led the middle pitch and barely held on, I've had an easier time on E5s. Stunning route all the he same, much more committing that the grade would suggest.
Joughton - AltLd O/S - 22/Aug/14
lead p1&2. got dark on p3. was fully shitting it. may have pulled on a few slings, but i couldnt see any holds so im saying it was onsight!
markalmack - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/14 with gwen, james marjot
Fell seconding P2. Just made it up P3 on lead, came very close to falling on Ross's head.
theotherpetehill - AltLd dog - 09/Aug/14 with Ross McKerchar
Brilliant! Crux didn't feel e3 to me but was greasy so maybe ok in better conditions. Terrifying 5mins excepting Pete to fall on top of me as he sketched up P2.

Fantastic to be out on a proper sea-cliff again. Exciting crux

Had to rest on p2 and p3 - it turns out altitude training isn't great for your rock climbing!
Adam Booth - AltLd - 19/May/13 with Rob Greenwood
Came off seconding roof and nearly got hit by falling block as the rope tensioned above and pulled peg and block off! Pretty damp.

Committing as hell to start (especially starting at 9 O'clock at night!) then damn hard moves on the crux pitch (which I sadly fell off). Pure class. Finished in darkness, thank god for the head torch!

Exciting jump to start but that's only the beginning! Crux felt hard and bold but what a stupendous pitch. Got back to the bags just as the light faded and in time to rescue the abb rope (and Matt's jacket) from the ocean.
alaan - AltLd O/S - 28/Aug/10 with Mat
What a route. Epic to get to it. Two cracking top pitches. Felt my mojo on lead seeping back a little on this after forcing myself to commit to layback at start of my lead on 3rd pitch.
Middle pitch is something else. Thanks for the ride Al !

Excellent route. Superb commitment right from the initial jump across the zawn. Crux moves were easier than expected but the tat was very dubious. A long held ambition that fully lived up to expectations.
KRB - Lead O/S - 10/Aug/07 with Martin Bridges
We had difficulties with the crux of the second pitch - I don't remember it being that hard. Stu crossed the roof very slightly below the point at which Rowland Edwards is pictured in Extreme Rock, but took a couple of falls onto the manky insitu gear first. I failed at this point and went left about 6' lower which seemed more reasonable but still hard.
