Main pitch as good as Golden Slipper. Not quite as clean but absorbing climbing. Sore toes by the top! Finished direct up the groove, making for a more sustained, distinct and better route. Ab tat at the top of both GS and this route if wanting to do both.

Lessworkmoreclimbing - Lead - 31/Aug/14 with Deb
One thin section, tad reachy & delicate gear reasonable
alpinismo.uk - 2nd - 31/Aug/14 with Jen
Lead first and last pitch.
Good, technical climbing with super sharp grippy rock.
Not too pleasant in howling wind but still enjoyable.

Will Sheaff - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/13 with Will Harris
Did P1 only - stay well away - F**king awful! loose, dirty and slimy accessing the belay. the corner has vanished into the undergrowth, I climbed the slab out right but recommend doing golden slipper P1!

P2. Couldn't find the start so did first pitch of Golden Slipper instead! Great route - especially second pitch.
Gudge - AltLd O/S - 18/Jun/13 with Lewis Gray
Tried proper first pitch. Dry black lichen coats the whole pitch, holds included. Practised my down climbing! Did first pitch of Golden Slipper instead. Kev led main pitch, it was nice and I would have led it if I wasn't so tired.

Hol - pitches 1 and 3. Me - pitch 2. Started with the first pitch of Golden Slipper - far more appealing (and obvious) than the first pitch as described for Poker Face. A really tremendous route.

Led P2, which was pretty stiff, it probably didn't help that I continued up the groove rather than break left onto Glass Slipper. Still, great route, with amazing positions!
Ken Applegate - AltLd - 21/May/12 with Tom Greenwood
The first pitch is, as Stephen Reid and Steve Ashton's excellent 1989 guidebook indicates, 'repulsive'. Definitely a bit harder than Arcturus.

Blammo! Sustained and gets progressively more thuggy and technical then sets you free onto the face just below the top. Get your game face on.

Mark lead 1st pitch, and i struggled with the 2nd. gained the last jug in the top of the steep groove before the step left but had no suitable wires left to place and could not hold on any longer as it took half a dozen goes to get this far. fell off again so lowered off.
