Led 1+2. Had quite a fight with the crux but I am terrible at cracks. Good route though.
Liam Ingram - AltLd O/S - 24/Jul/14 with Clemmie Mitchell

First pitch is chossy and overgrown, last 2 are awesome. Getting some stick off winter ascents tho, a lot of the cracks are starting to flare. Other than that it's a great climb, well protected throughout and not desperate or pumpy.

Hard work for HVS!! Surely 5b? Great route though!
Graham Westbrook - AltLd O/S - 18/May/14

Great route. Led Pitches 1 & 3. The crack on pitch 2 was the crux but felt middle of the grade. Good combination of climbing styles up the crack with some positive lay-backing where needed.
Big Lee - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/13 with Steve Gould

A very good climb, as good as Engineers Slabs in my opinion with three contrasting pitches.

The crack is very sustained with a good crux move and is worth E1 5b. First pitch also probably 5a and with poorer rock and spaced protection in places. Top pitch is excellent and exposed. Winter ascents have helped to keep it fairly clean and overall a very good mountain route with great atmosphere. Climbed in the evening from Honister (1 hr+ approach)which brings the sun onto the crag.
