bit scruffy at the bottom and over grown on the slab. forget the last pitch, just scrambled out.
darren hudson - AltLd O/S - 09/Sep/12 with David Ford

P2 and P4 have some excellent airy moves that make this very worthwhile in spite of the bold P1 and dirty final topout

Climbed to avoid queues on TP where the routes join. Surprised at finding the ungraded slab and corner pitch rather tricky (4b)and the 4a final pitch not to exist. Not a good route, the rock is poor and the route degenerates into a heathery scramble. Should have waited, enjoyed the views and finished TP.

lead 4th pitch, quite exposed :). Belayed from tree, would advise belaying from the block on the corner below, as communication was difficult

A really enjoyable route which has interesting and quite lonely positions, leaving behind the busy TP area

Much neglected alternative to B.C Buttress/T'Dale Pinnacle. Really quite good but crosses Pinnacle route so still have to queue

Pitch 1 is worth at least 4b, as is Pitch 4. Last pitch scarcely exists! Excellent route, deserving of more attention.
