Jon lead up to the belay ledge and then some confusion about where the route went necessitated some guidebook consultation so we split the route at the ledge and then I climbed up and traversed over the pinnacle to abseil off as the corner seemed to get quite grassy at this point. Jon's first HS lead, a good effort.

Quite polished these days and a bit greasy! Harder than I remembered! Good get back on the rock after over a year off climbing! Good first pitch, top pitch pretty vegetated and chosey!

Seconded scary time retrieving cam after lead got lost. Second pitch up chimney route was remarkably tricky

Not as good as I hoped it would be. 1st pitch was top end HS i felt. Went straight up the corner on 2nd pitch as per north Wales rock. Chossy as hell

scott mayled 17/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Nice climb, easy at the grade well protected, very polished after halfway ledge.

Crux is most definately the seeping ooze, but then, this is Wales after all. Should we grade for perfect conditions or typical? Either way, top end of HS and VERY enjoyable, worth doing whatever the condition.
