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.

Lead p1,3,6. Great climb, easy route finding bonus! Dry conditions, just one little shower after p2.

poeter210 - 2nd O/S - 25/May/13 with adrian voss

Avoided both, the tower and wide crack on the left. Good route, with nice airy finish.
D Berry - Solo O/S - 19/May/13

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.)
