Lovely route with atmosphere on P2
Phill_ Thompson - AltLd - 28/Jun/14 with Lucy Prins

djdavies - 2nd - 25/Jun/14

Led all 3 pitches, 1 and 3 straight forward enough. Spent 10 minutes trying in vain to top the right hand side of the roof on pitch 2 until a friendly couple pointed out I should traverse out left instead ( cheers Colin and Olga) so pumped by then I ran out the traverse which I think felt way harder than it should have, so happy to reach that belay! Great climb but pitch 2 makes it.2

Scary traverse!

Cat did 1 and 3, I did the rather scary traverse on pitch 2!

Mike_Watson_99 - AltLd O/S - 01/May/11 with Fiona

Lead odd pitches. Pitch 1 is a rather arboreal experience, pitch 2 is really lovely. The direct finish looks nice but my feet were too sore after 8 hours in rock shoes so decided to leave for another day.

Led 1st pitch, which went up through bracken and trees. Crap. Had only 1 decent move in it. 1st pitch can be missed out by walking up the path to the second pitch. 2nd pitch good. 3rd pitch just a scramble.

Utterly rubbish 1st pitch, would recomend walking into the 2nd pitch from the right. 2nd pitch quite good once on the traverse. Finished by the VS 4c variant, which was good but short lived. 4c yes, VS no!
