Lead chossy first pitch. Bit of a palaver belaying Frieze from both sides on the excellent traverse.
freemanTom (Guildford MC) - AltLd - 29/Sep/13 with Tries, Mike CMC, Amy Till

rubisco - AltLd O/S - 29/Sep/13 with Purely

Led first and third pitches. First one pretty hard going for a mod. Climbing straightforward but hard to find places for gear and pretty chossy in places. Worth it for the actual traverse which was great fun.

only a mod? hardest mod i have done, fantastic route, traversing the crescent is amazing!
Wesley Orvis - Lead - 26/May/13

Loose poorly protected first pitch not a lot of fun, but the traverse pitch was brilliant. Complications of bringing 3 others up and badly extended runners led to a nightmare at 2nd belay, followed by a worrying grassy top pitch with limited gear. Definitely an adventure, descended in fading light!

with tom hall, the lack of gear on the first pitch and exposure of the traverse makes for a very interesting mod! great route, done in trainers and the rain.

Leading good first pitch (35m), Paul led up to start of traverse. If that traverse is a moderate, then i want to upgrade some other stuff! I lead traverse and remainder.
themightyblues - AltLd O/S - 10/Sep/06 with Paul Derrick

Easy climbing but with all the feel of a big mountain route. Done in 3 pitches. At the stance of pitch one the crescent traverse looks intimidating but it was a doddle. A great fun big mountain scramble!!
