Hidden - AltLd O/S - 09/Jul/14

Must have gone wrong on P2, the line we attempted was very thin and in no way only 4a. Complete head wreck, abseiled off after reversing two thirds of what we thought was P2. Would love a photo (topo) of P2 to see where we went wrong.
dickhib - Lead - 22/Jun/14 with Chelsea Hibbert

Stevie lead and accidentally went up the finishing grove of 'Smarter than the average Bear' (VS 4C) instead of the actual route but this made for a much more interesting finish. I think a lot of people have been caught out by this.

Didn't fancy the top pitch - traverse looked a bit tenuous - so climbed the 4c top pitch of Yogi instead! So can't really vote...

Led the second pitch. The toughest moves are well protected and give you time to think them through. Fun climb
Trevers - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/13 with wjcdean

Lead p1, felt about vdiff, will be back for p2!
wjcdean - AltLd O/S - 23/Aug/13 with Trevers

Zane lead the first pitch and I lead up the 2nd pitch of Smarter than the average bear as the 2nd pitch of Sheer Khan was completely overgrown!
magicmartin - AltLd O/S - 19/Aug/13 with Zane Butcher

Fiskavaig - 2nd - 11/Aug/13 with Ruth, Alisdair B

Led in 1 pitch. If doing it as 2 pitched suggest belay at the Tree rather than below the steep headwall.

Found the final corner hard for the grade. Done in one pitch with 2x 60m ropes.

easy and rather scrappy P1 (anthony), top pitch is nice with good holds but need to look for them.

Me P1, Jamie P2, easy climbing for P1 very pleasant P2.

A bit wet. Had some PYB people abseil on to our head. First pitch the start is ok then it wanders over muddy ledges up to the belay. Second pitch is better and getting established in to the corner crack is quite delicate and difficult.

Sam Melville - 2nd - Aug/12

toasted - 2nd - 29/Jul/12 with Paul Greenhow

Easy start to first belay, second pitch just below the tree belay area is the most interesting part of the climb. good side pull, walk feet up high and then reach up with left hand before reaching the tree belay. Abseil off with 60m rope is possible following same route.

No way was that VD. Has Dan even logged the right climb? oh well whatever
arctic_jen - 2nd - 03/Jul/11 with Dan

Second pitch is probably severe and the guidebook gave it 4a
Blurgy319 - Lead O/S - 15/Jun/11 with Mark Freestone

Severe is fair, as per the current guidebook.
HIGHTOWER - 2nd - 15/Jun/11 with Stu (Kinloss), Mark Amyes

did it all in one pitch,not a very hard climb but nice all the same,especially as it was getting dark and didn't have much time.think we took a slight variation at the top bit to the right.

gave it a clean and traffic for the tremadog fest. tricky cruxes on both pitches, but gear is good. would have graded harder than VD.
