Did the first pitch, pretty sustained and because of the gale force winds did the last two pitches of roaring meg instead to finsh the climb quicker.

P2 which was pure class. Hanging one armed fist jam at the overhang while placing gear was an unbelievable situation to be in. P1 is more 5c and p3 more 5b

Really damn good. Tom's favourite line at the Head. I led pitch 1 and 3, he led the steep pitch 2, which suits him perfectly. Had the priviledge of meeting Calvin and Clare afterwards, who Tom thanked for such an awesome route. Calvin said the first pitch originally had chockstones, which fell out, making it harder. Had abbed down to do Blockbuster, but glad to get on this instead. An eye opener and confidence booster for Tom indeed.

Amazing route – one of the best E2s I have ever climbed! I lead P1 & 3, and Dave did P2. The hardest single move was in P1 (6a?), as agreed with Dave. P3 was 5b, as opposed to 5c in the definitive guide.

Too cold & mentally & physically fatigued. Kirill got up the first pitch, although not without a couple of falls. I managed to second it cleanly but found it tough with cold hands. We ended up finishing up Roaring Meg.

P1 only.

Quite a few offwidth sections but doable without massive gear. We had up to size 4 friend. Another stunning day of weather at fairhead and a quality route to match. Matt placed an x4 blind and needles to say it is still there. Crowbar anyone?

Amazing route! The rescue helicopter that was flying below us on at the second belay added to the psyche!!

Brill, in a very traditional way. Don't miss out the first pitch As good as the rest. And no easier!

I seconded first pitch of Roaring Meg (VS 5a) and then lead on both 5c pitches. Good rests between overhangs, handy for strong guys with lack of stamina. Obvious and powerfull line without single crux. One of the best E2s I have ever done. Full rack, no special gear (up to Cam 3 and no RPs). Hard for grade.
