Good climbing but just a shame about the middle bit
smithjmw46 - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/15 with Dave Bentley, Lee Musson

Josh lead pitch 1 and 2 together. Really nice route, all quite small but positive. Pitch 2: HVG - hard very grassy. Pitch 3 lead by Lee

I ran P1 and P2 together and Graham did P3. P2 is just grass scrambling, and the belay at the end is adequate but not amazing. P1 is really nice though, lots of positive holds. Nowhere near 5a IMO.

Lovely first pitch but a bit thin, pitch 2 absolutely horrible, mud lose rock no gear, displaced a meter wide block held on by mud which missed my belay by about 3m, when I did find a placement for an ok-ish nut and a dodgy cam I dismissed it as a safe belay, kept climbing to find something better, mistake, ended up doing 45m of the climb on a 50m rope and belaying from 1 piece of very marginal gear, glad Alex has a cool head and good skills, last pitch was great though!

Awful middle pitch!!!!!! So overgrown and damp. 3rd pitch good and first pitch definitively 5a and not 4c
