In the sun sun having fun it's in my blood...... Utterly petrifying bridging out of the groove. Ran up the rest of the first pitch on a massive high....Weather was outstanding.
nich959 - AltLd O/S - Nov/14

Almost had an epic on the second pitch, climbing not difficult but very little gear on.

No idea where we went with this one. Totally lost. The first pitch we did was almost totally devoid of gear, but fairly easy climbing. The second pitch was even easier. Even after re-reading the route descriptions I'm not 100% where we went, but it didn't feel like the Hard Severe we were looking for...
Snorfalorpagus - AltLd O/S - 10/Nov/13 with David Mackenzie

Hidden - 2nd dog - 13/Oct/13

Thought we'd done the original, but on closer inspection.....end of first superb pitch was run out as I'd run out of small wires :)
Phil Layton - Lead O/S - 12/Oct/13 with Phil Laxton

Climbed as a 3. Decent climb. Few fun moves
damob123 - AltLd - 06/Oct/13 with joe ramsdale, Neil Davies

Climbed in the dark with shitty head torches. Nice climb!
kabutsu - AltLd - 19/Aug/13

We got lost on this one. I lead the first pitch to the start of valeries rib. Zane did the HS second pitch and fourth and I completed the third pitch. Nice Climb!

Nice climbing, especially P2. No idea where I was meant to go at the top, so made it up as I went.
woody0606 - Lead O/S - 15/May/13 with Niki Watling

Good route to improve your route finding. A little wet on the first pitch.

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 09/Apr/13

Instucting session with student Nicky learning to lead and Reuben seconding. Done after a morning of scrambling on Milestone Buttress Approach in semi-winter conditions. Tremadog was the place to be this week for rock - sunny, dry and out of the wind.

queued for over an hour, lost route on second pitch, got spooked and ab'd down. Fantastic
hcaw - Lead dnf - 05/May/12 with Jenny Cawson

Led P1 and P3, but may have gone off route on P3. Last 15 ft of P1 are lovely, and the belay is picturesque. Our P3 was up an 8 inches wide crack, strenous and unprotected but mostly good holds.

Memorable. Went off route onto E2, second took me off belay by mistake, pulled a hold off and left hanging by one hand then dropped a set of nuts in a tree below.
Hexman - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/09

Much ado about nothing. Led first pitch. Queued. Got V and James to help. Seconded second pitch. Walked back to tent and had food.

valentinesbabe - AltLd O/S - 24/Jul/09 with Matt Jones

Led from the start of the normal route right through to the end of the second guidebook pitch, which gave a really good pitch which is pretty good value for Severe. Definitely worthwhile.
