Great climbing the whole way. Ran 1st & 2nd pitches together to get to the big, comfy belay then left Kev to finish the crux pitch....for which I was subsequently quite grateful!
Fraser - AltLd O/S - 20/Jul/13 with Kev

Wanted to do this one for ages and it didn't disappoint. Great route with varied and interesting climbing.

Really really excellent!. Lead both pitches, the first pitch was surprisingly scary!.

Brilliant. Steep but with holds and gear everywhere. I stupidly traversed about 5m too high on P1 which increased the exposure somewhat.

Brilliant climbing. Did it in 3 pitches and i'd recommend it that way unless you're in a hurry as the first belay is in a great position.

Johann - Lead O/S - 29/May/12 with Graham boistelle

Climbed in 2 pitches with some rope drag, not bold not hard just really enjoyable climbing. Abseil in a bit of a state would benefit from someone with a knife and new tat, need enough to link 2 ok wires and a tree into one point

Very late start on a gloomy day. First two pitches are great fun though and well primed for the return. Could go into detail about these pitches but that might spoil the surprise.

Great route, was about to launch up the upper pitch of spacewalk before my subconscious recalled the guidebook desc and saved me. Probably soft 6a, those finger locks are so bomber I had trouble taking them out.

Really varied climbing.
Ally Baba - AltLd O/S - 07/Sep/08 with Gav Swinton

Brilliant route - never desparate but lots of hard bits and slightly bolder than I was expecting. Very varied and great fun!

Great route in fantastic position above the Coe. First pitch is much better and varied. Second is a tricky groove with tons of gear.
