Good route, big and adventurous feeling. First pitch was v easy but quite bold. Though there are quite a few small spikes. The final pitch before terminal arete was the hardest, though not too difficult. Possibly HVS? Moved together on terminal arete, ace.. Good route, quite adventurous but never hard. HVS/ soft e1 maybe?

Great route
roberto18 - Lead O/S - 28/May/12 with Dad (Mike Bridges)

lead all the 5a and 5b pitches. wasn't sure what to expect, P1 was quite bold but not too hard, P2 was a bit of a deathtrap, quite a bit of loose rock and quite runout, definitely the crux pitch, P3 has some nice moves leaving the belay pulling through "the eaves" on quartz holds, P4 is a scramble, P5 is soft for 5b and has loads of gear. overall the climb is pretty loose in places especially P2 and P5, some scarily big chunks wobble. finished up terminal arete.

P3...Remember to clean your feet, I almost fell because the clumps of grass were wet going back onto Welsh Rock. Great climb!! P5 felt like the crux pitch although the long second pitch was quite run out! got to lead the whole climb though and topped out via Terminal Arete.
