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.

Seconded scary time retrieving cam after lead got lost. Second pitch up chimney route was remarkably tricky
grakgrak - 2nd - 26/Jul/13 with Richard hughes

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

Did wall climb, soap gut, chimney route combo. Everything about trad that annoys me was on this route. Shame as when in good nick and before the hordes had our impact, it may well have been fun.

Nice corner with long runout to belay, steve led 2nd pitch from stance
chile-dog03 - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/09 with Lamyman, Steve Redmond

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.
