Hol - pitches 1 and 3; me - pitch 2. Just brilliant! Wanted this for a long time. For some reason, had assumed the crux was going through the first roof, so thought I was cruising...however, the crux-proper comes higher at the bulge, and so it was a bit of a shock when it arrived. It's stiff, but managed it clean. Very pleased.

Julian Cooper - 2nd O/S - 27/Jun/13 with Stuart Knott

Thought the crux was very sequency - went up and back to the ledge about ten times! Maybe hard 5c once you get the right sequence, certainly 6a if not.

Harder than grand alliance
Apharri - Lead O/S - 05/Jun/13 with Dave Wharton

Toms gear mostly in situ on the main pitch after his sterling lead effort. Since the crux is above it anyway it sped things up but didn't make any difference to difficulty. We followed chalk and in hindsight took the "easier alternative 2 metres right" the guide mentions for the lower bulge, but didn't really clock this until abbing down.
AJM - Lead β - 03/Jun/13 with Tom Lambert

Gave it everything before falling off the crux on lead but managed to second it clean. Will be back.
Tubs - 2nd β - 03/Jun/13 with AJM

A good route - varied climbing with two cruxy sections, sustained but with a few good routes, generally good gear apart from the slightly spicy run out on the crux. On the main crux at the bulge I climbed up to have a look, failed to commit and climbed back down to the ledge, which probably used up more energy than going for it would have done! Did it fine on the second go, fairly hard for 5c but nothing desperate. Tim led the lovely wet and slimy first pitch.

tim newton - 2nd O/S - 01/Jun/13 with misha nepogodiev

Lead the slimy, wet, crap first pitch (4b) as was still buckled after trying Fallen Angel earlier in the day. Very hard for E3.

Amazing route, foot slipped off going for the last move above the buldge, cam popped and took a big fall resulting in a painful bum. Gutted but pleased to get it on 2nd.
john lynch - 2nd - 10/Jul/11 with simon smith

Hardest E3 5c ive been on i think. Suspicions that it has shed some rock bumping it up a notch. Still fairly safe though

good route, short crux on pretty small holds, which felt tricky in the roasting sun

Mostly quite easy climbing apart from the overhang & the crux section near the top that is much harder than anything else & quite pokey - don't fall off, probably go quite a long way! Superb.
DSM - Lead O/S - 26/Jun/09 with Andy Gittins

Best belay in the world, made up for seconding the actual pitch!! Sat in the evening sun

Ace. Start was very wet and used quite a lot of my rack!! Roof is easy enough so not sure why the guide says often avoided?? Crux off ledge felt 6a

Great route, lovely long clean pitch with mostly big holds and a few smaller ones! Crux is above gear which makes it a bit more exciting...

Lead off Were Tom got too. Used his gear. E3 6a. Its not run out, its not pumpy and its not sustained. It has a hard crux, but maybe not 6a?

Attempted to lead the crux pitch but fell of the crux (my 1st lead fall). Decided to second it instead.

Great route - necky for the leader but the (small) holds keep coming and the rock is comforting in its roughness.
