At last and after 20+ years of patiently and unsuccessfully waiting for the crag to become unbanned I decided to risk it. This pitch lives up to all the hype. Not easy but continually absorbing. Brilliant.

Duncan Campbell 06/Aug Lead O/S

Brilliant. Very sustained with I thought a couple of pretty tricky bits. Thought I was going to blow it on the last hard move into the crack but didn't. No beef from the farmer. One of the best bits of inland limestone climbing I've ever done. Great morning's climbing before heading to Mason's wedding - not a shit day!

we thought the E4 5c grade might reflect the stealth factor, but it is actually no pushover (and brilliant)

Absolutely brilliant route. Amazing. Be very quiet. We thought the access was all good, and were not making much noise, but still got shouted at, and told to clear off.

Sustained and 6a traversing right? Humidity made it slightly more stressful than it needed to be.

Early start! Amazing route which is pretty sustained for the grade.

a tremendous pitch! one of N Wales' best E4s. quite sustained and maybe just 6a in 1 or 2 places but no hard moves; the moves up the pillar are v cool. good but spaced gear (lots of v good threads) with some good shakeouts. a must do!

Climbed a week before the ban kicked in. Waited 20+ years then started climbing it again every year or two. Awesome route.
