Climbed with Byrne and Liam. Byrne did a great job leading the first pitch after a bit a false start. I led pitches 2 and 3. Went with Climbers Club description for P2 going o ff the left side (facing in?) which felt quite exposed with sparse pro. Well done to Liam for some good climbing. Only marred by the fact that another pair decided, with the whole mountain available, to do this climb at the same time.

lead top part of first pitch as hugo split it at the holly busy. Amazing climbing once your on the slab on this pitch all the way to the ledge. Fantastic first multipitch lead by hugo as the bottom bit is rather run out! dont let this put you off as above is some ace climbing

Made an absolute mess of the first scrambly pitch, ending up in the wrong place. Led through the second pitch which seemed very bold for a VDiff - some improvisation required to find runners. Climbed in glorious sunshine. Was worried that a sheep stuck on the ledge was going to jump onto my head!
Trevers - AltLd - 16/Mar/14 with wjcdean
first vdiff of the season and a bit of a shambles. The less said about hte first pitch the better (you idiot, Trevs). the rest is good climbing although on horrific protection, glad i wasnt leading P2 (well redeemed, Trevs!). A sheep stuck on y Borfa was stamping his feet at me as I topped out, glad he didnt feel the need to butt me off his territory
wjcdean - AltLd O/S - 16/Mar/14 with Trevers
Not a great route in January. P1 was slimy, vegetated, muddy and lichenous followed by a bold and steep wall. Freezing fingers and a hailstorm meant we bailed at the holly. Not VD at all.
Babika - AltLd dnf - 19/Jan/14 with julian bridle
A sunny spell lulled us into a false sense of security. Bailed at the first (official) belay with wet, numb hands when the hail started falling having already turned it into two pitches. As soon as we abbed down the sun came out again!

Was hungover but still think this is more than vdiff. I lead pitch 1 and 2. Casey did the top. most of the climbing is ran out and on crap gear. would not like to be a vdiff climber and take this on... or perhaps it was the beer gremlins. :-)

From the small stance below the crack Pip lead the first pitch proper. He must have run out 12m of rope before he found any gear and the stance is 10m off the ground! Fortunately he has a steady head from lots of hard scrambling experience. Nice pitch but seemed a bit scrappy above. Lovely situation though.

Struggled on the first section after slipping on some mud then pulling having a large crystal snap off in hand. Gear is a little lacking, especially on the lower section. Having said this it's a superb route up a stunning line - especially good with the severe finish, which I found easier than the lower bottom of pitch one. Excellent route but beware of some friable rock.
