Led pitches 1,3&4. Soaking wet on the third pitch and at the top of the second and finished in the dark (knew that was going to happen though, started ridiculously late!). Brilliant climb.

Phenomenal route. The memory of bridging out across the groove in the arete in P1, with the sea crashing in below, will live with me for a long time!

p2,4 wicked exposure (especially on the hanging corner of p1 and stepping out on p2) really cool top pitch and pretty steady for E2

The second best E2.

did go a little off the line, but managed to regain it before the crux
jamiefoxen - AltLd O/S - 10/Jun/11 with Andy Latham

Lead 1 and 3. Pitches 1 and 4 the best, amazing line but not really 4 stars

I was the only one of four who found this hard. Everyone agreed it was E2 though and anyone who says otherwise is a fool. Personally I think there are better climbs here. Only 3 stars from me.

E2????? E1 5b. U-EI on grey wall is better.

Messed up the crux on P3 and fell off, spoiled my enjoyment of an amazing route.

Absolutley awesome! We followed a photo topo which was wrong and sent us to the left of the main corner, so we did the "bad beta variation" which kind of takes the middle ground between priest and prophecy.

Greg Boswell - Lead O/S - 14/Jun/08 with Damien

Easy E2 if that - maybe even E1!!! Should I say I think its a tad over-rated as well?? O-Ei is a better route IMHO.
