Well worth doing - really liked this route. We gave up on the "wide crack" but the rest provided plenty of entertainment!

I lead it all exactly as described in the book
paulsross - Lead - 27/Sep/15 with Martin Worthy, Marion Hughes
Nice climb, thought the 'devious' 4th pitch felt more like a HS and possibly tough for a new S leader? Really nice pitch though, one where a little looking and lateral (literally) thinking meant that no matter how blank a section looked there was a good hold exactly where needed.
Top was running with water.

Lead Block Tower and bubbly wall pitches. Block Tower pitch was fantastic- lovely bold climbing on sharp holds.

Led P1&2 moving together, then led alternate pitches afterwards. Interesting in big boots.
Pete_Frost - AltLd O/S - 31/May/14 with Blake Williams
Very traditional feeling, every pitch interesting - last pitch sensational... spud chugging up the bubbly rock, weirdest rock I've seen in Wales! Lovely.

It compares very well with the more famous routes on the East Face. http://youtu.be/9X5NySCeRi4

Avoided the Block Tower and wide crack pitches (both on the left) but did the nice finish up the steep bubbly wall. Worthy of 2 stars at least but a mega sandbag at Diff in the previous guidebooks! Had the route to ourselves whilst all the classics had queues.

Avoided both, the tower and wide crack on the left. Good route, with nice airy finish.

Not even close to a diff
sheelba - AltLd - 22/Sep/12
A severe at least - the block pitch is a good 4b and the wide crack higher up is brutish - grading this a diff is the ultimate sandbag.
JasonV - AltLd - 22/Sep/12
A Diff leader arriving at the block tower pitch is in for a bit of a surprise! However, this is a really pleasant route and the block tower made me smile. (I've voted for HD as I'm not allowed to give the proper grade which is severe with the block tower pitch given 4b.)
