Great nostalgic route - bugger to get to (found ourselves leading up the scramble using 6mm tat as rope, NOT reccommended) and find (much higher up the gully than we thought(there's another rib before the one you want)) and working out where it started (it's not on the flat wall it goes round into a deep groove and follows that up coming out onto the arete near end of first pitch)

Quite a committing move up to the first belay by the wobbly block, the gear on the hollow sounding flake didn't inspire confidence. Walked off after P2 as pitch 3 looked a bit contrived and we couldn't figure out quite which groove to follow. Superb route in a great position!

Hardest move is on the cracked slab. Airy but easier move on to nose. Nice traverse. Not entirely sure where the 4th pitch goes.

Did as 4 pitches, lead P2 (traverse and crack) & a long P4 up what I think was the right line... Found the whole thing very entertaining!

Bit of a battle but very good! Yes the block does wobble.

Middle of the road VS, no idea why it's been upgraded. First two pitches are great, quality falls away massively after Teufel's crack

Think we got a bit lost on pitch 4 and five. Was very uncertian that I found the right shallow grove behind the block, and there was no black wall above.
twodada - AltLd O/S - 30/Jul/11 with John Hammond
Great climb! Led first pitch, gear was difficult and crux move felt harder than 4c! Merl led second pitch. We missed final pitch because none of us could feel our feet due to the wind!
suffolknick - AltLd O/S - 01/May/11 with matt, clams
felt like VS 5a, 4c; crux cracked slab at the top of P1 (or P2 according to route description above)

First time dragged up a mountain route. Horrible, didn't know what to expect. Seriously struggled on the slab of pitch 2. Start of pitch 3 fun though.

Wow! What a brilliant route - lived up to all my expectations. Bold, hard, exposed, sustained and committing. I reckon VS 4b, 4c, 4c, 4b, 4b although there seems to be quite a discrepancy in the guidebooks. Only disappointment - I dropped my camera en route somewhere...

Nice high mountain route. Led pitch 2&4. Crux is pretty short lived, and quite easy for the grade, if a little exposed.

After first two pitches of Gash, worth the hawl for the last pitch. Good day out, not HVS as suggeseted by new guide book.

Escaped by abbing off from the blocks on the second pitch. Typical Bank Holiday August weather swept in ....rain, hail and a gusty wind!

Lead pitches 1,3 and 5.
Found the bulge at the top of the first pitch the hardest. Gear wasn't great until that point. Managed to get hands high enough to find small jug tho. Nice step onto nose on pitch 3, and missed initial traverse into the crack, which itself I found hard work jamming. Pitch 4 was unexpectedly nice. All in all a great route.

NWMC meet. Started a supposed girdle of Tryfan from Grooved Arete when well up South Gully saw a ledge leading out across the steep left wall. With a bit of rope jigerry pokery reversed it and got onto the wall to find Ron James on the crux of Munich just below. Traversed left over ledges and up finishing on Gashed crag

John Robertson. John led the crux, its a bit airy and hairy for a couple of moves. Enjoyed Teufels Crack
