HVS variation. Awesome route. Led P1-5
PeteLoveless - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/13 with Sarah Turner

Awesome route. Every pitch has really nice quality climbing on it, good gear and good belays. Perhaps a bit soft for the grade.

Captain Solo - AltLd rpt - 26/Aug/12 with Davey

Lead P1 and took the 5b option on P3. First clean 5b lead. Continually interesting climbing throughout the whole route - really enjoyed it.
iceicebaby - AltLd O/S - 26/Aug/12 with Sam Wood

Led pitches 1,3 & 5. Did the 5b variation on pitch 3. Great climbing. Shame about the voracious midges at the top of pitch 5. Seconded pitch 6 wearing a midge head net!
borderline - AltLd O/S - 04/Aug/12 with FM

in 6 pitches, led 1, 3 and 5 and 5b variation. A superb climb although the midge attack on pitches 5 and 6 was ferocious. Pitches 1, 3, 5 and 6 are all brilliant

After a climbing lay-off of over a year, initially felt rusty but it soon came back. Didn't take the 5b route, though it looks well protected. Approach & descent a bit sporty. Be prepared for visitors, lots of ticks.
errrrm? - AltLd O/S - 13/Jul/11 with gaz h

must be the best low grade route in the country. each pitch is worth 3 stars on its own. should get **** in latter's guide.
ferdia - AltLd O/S - 24/Jun/11 with Calum

burto - AltLd O/S - 24/Jun/11 with hertha

Worth doing but VS 4c and max of ** for me. E2s do look interesting but we left too late to get on those.
French Erick - AltLd O/S - 05/Jun/11 with Dave Kerr

VS 4c all the way for me. Penultimate pitch is an absolute dream!! very worthwhile route but not HVS.
