Fun route! Even more fun if you can synchronise with a friend on Direct route so that you are coming up through the chimney when their second arrives at that point.

First pitched climb for Tony and Cos, first time playing at being a guide for me. They did it in big boots, all of us with packs. I led all the pitches and they seconded together. Took the left hand chimney on the last pitch for an extra challenge, it was a bit of a struggle with a pack on!

lead on the final 3 pitches. A bit polished and greasy start of pitch 3. Interesting in big boots. Definately 3 stars for me
kiwi boy - 11/Jul/09 with tamsin

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/09

excellent route, varied and 'traditional' in places, some fantastic situations, and an interesting descent- 3* in my book.
no_more_scotch_eggs - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/09 with loudfish

easy but great to move fast up. The climb back down was far trickier than the last pitch though.

In *very* wet (although *mostly* not actually raining) conditions. Extremely traditional, but an excellent adventure. The waterfall abseil descent that we did was rather interesting too!
