EXTREME CAUTION REQUIRED!! The left hand pillar of the bridging start is detached and precarious, was moving around whilst I was climbing. Would seriously recommend not climbing this route until it is stabilised.James Oakes - Lead O/S - 28/Jul/14 with Gareth Hooson
Tried this shortly before it rained. Couldn't even make the first bridging move before I rested on a cam in the crack, which fell out after 3 seconds. Joss (belaying) fell flat on his arse on a big pointy rock and hurt himself, I nearly twisted an ankle in the rubble but was ok. Crap experience!

Wicked moves but slippery and frustrating!! Hard for the grade.

Didn't have the strength left to get up the groove, perfect slot for a nutkey to stand on though! There is also a small (mobile phone sized) block loose on the arete of the upper groove

Took an inverted whipper above bars due to mis-read. Got it 2nd time. Solid at E1. 5c into 5c most of way!

Cool moves, and well protected, but wouldn't want to fall onto the bars!

Awesome climb! Mental bar action, preceded by some interesting back and footing. Owen and Dunc came up on second at the same time, making for good fun on the bars. However, this was marred slightly by an insane midge-fest.

Have wanted to do this route for years. It certainly met expectations. Great fun. The top bar isn't held in by anything!
Will Hunt - Lead O/S - 24/Nov/12 with Alison Ellwood
Fun, interesting, hard, weird, awkward, unique, amazing route! Slightly damp when I started. Slipped whilst contemplating the wet jug at the top of the first chimney section and fell onto a nut above the first bolt (first proper lead fall - not as scary as I was expecting). Got straight back on and finished it fine, despite light hail that started when I was on the double bars which turned full on for Dougie seconding. Dougie pointed out whilst climbing that the short spike above the two spikes is alarmingly loose...

In the sleet and snow... The last bar is pretty loose, make sure you pull hard on it or not at all.

Shimmied up the right arete of the chimney (figured fleece wasn't going to provide much friction!). Perhaps easier is to move out onto the face as second did.

E1? Seemed desperate for the grade. A lot of 5c, only the grade kept me on the top rockover. Rain whilst stood on the first bars added to the entertainment, as did I with the crowd watching. As someone else 3* but never again!
philhilo - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/11 with misha
The most unusual route I've ever done! Great fun but pretty hard all the way with the crux at the very top, solid E2 5c. Would be a spicy E3 without the top two bolts (the first bolt isn't really necessary anyway). A good lead from Phil, particularly as there was a passing shower just as he got established on the double bars.

Was really enjoying it, then as I was trying to stand up on the top bar, I pulled off the flake above and landed back on the bar. Pulled on the ab rope after that to get out!
