The relaxed clip up of threads ends in tears as you face the spicy top on wobbly holds. Nice!Vertigo1 - Lead O/S - 17/Nov/13 with Toby

probably easier than Easy Rider - loads of gear and huge jugs...E1

Very enjoyable!! Never felt that hard and no lack of good holds and amazing concretions. A little sustained in the middle.
monsteratt - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/13 with Carl
Very easy, not E2 but very enjoyable. Massive holds all the way. The top is not a "psychological crux" the moves are easy and the holds are still massive.

A lot of questionable holds. It is completely protectable and only e2 without the threads (6 on one route!?), with it is e1.

Never E2. So many insitu threads (8 or 10) it felt like F5+ or HVS, not very steep, no hard moves, massive holds. Still a good 2-3 stars!

Great fun: the good holds just keep on coming, whereas the hard move you're expecting doesn't! Pumpiest at the start.

1st E2. Climbing is pretty steady until the run-out top - just don't lookdown and go for it.

Surprisingly non-pumpy. Lots of more or less in balance rests, no sustained sequences. Seemed very easy for E2, maybe only E1?

nice concretions and plenty of gear until the top 15 feet - poor rock. not as pumpy as it looks

Excellent, three stars, though agreed with Tom that it wasn't really E2. The dodgy top section felt ok, at least seconding!

Easier than I thought, until the loose headwall which really is the crux - but easier than the rest, and doable.

Stepped right at the top to bypass the tottering finish. Disappointed to read in latest ed of guidebook that doing so only earned me E1 tick.

Joyous! Only the first fifteen feet felt a little strenous while placing gear and was made worse by the damp which clung to the lower section all day. The concretions are a delight and the protection bombproof until the slightly suspect rock of the final tower which was a bit run out but I didn't care by then. First ever E2 after 27 years of climbing (with a recent 15 year break)!
