A bit awkward at times but a good route. Pitch lengths are a bit over in guide, actual route is probably only 75m.

I thought it pretty hard for hard severe.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 25/May/13

Good climb with quite a lot of opportunities for protection. Lost a sling wedged on the chockstone around half way up - red nylon. DO NOT USE as this is jammed but not secure. Lots of tiring chimney climbing left me very scratched.
gaberosser - AltLd dog - 12/Aug/12

Crowley6969 - AltLd - 11/Aug/12 with Ant fitzgerald

In 2 pitches, 40m and 35m. Lead p1, good route, layback flake on pitch 2 is great.
tompilgrem - AltLd - 12/Jul/12

Climbed as 2 pitches as suggested in Gary Latter guide-leaves a pleasant scramble pitch to arrive on ridge.
bobpilgrem - AltLd O/S - 12/Jul/12 with Tom

2 pitches, led p 1

Hidden - Lead O/S - 28/Apr/12

Climbed in 3 pitches, misleading guide book.
Ger H - AltLd - 09/Jun/11 with Angie K, Andy O, Liz H

ditto comments about Gary Latter guide, unhelpful and confusing until we read the old guide and found out the first pitch suppose to be 10m. Nice climb for ~50m, very broken and loose at top though
fizzychewitt - Lead - 08/Jun/11 with Angie, Geraint, Andy

hetaher - Lead O/S - 04/May/11 with Gail Smith

we had trouble finding this route. I think the gary latter topo has it marked way too far to the left
brianrunner - 05/Jun/10 with martina

Misled by Gary Latter's book of Lies.
