Felt pretty serious, mainly because I kept expecting everything I touched or placed gear in to break off, pull out or otherwise detach itself. Great climbing though (except P3...)

Great leads by Adrian and David. I misread the second pitch, and bottled the crux, retreating. David made a ballsy sequence of moves over the crux - the prospect of an abseil retreat was too much for him. The rock was very friable in places, and the seconds got showered in medium-sized sharp fragments of rock - stay out of the fall line when belaying the first pitch. Overall tho the rock is solid. Top pitch is hilarious. A great experience.

David ran together P1+2 on lead. I still feel justified claiming the alt lead for just that top pitch - it's rather engaging. It's a shame as it would otherwise be a 2 or even 3* crack climb!
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 18/May/14 with David Martinez
I led p1 and p3 and Chris enjoyed the quality climbing of p2. p3 is ridiculously scary with next to no gear!

All great crack climbing, loved it, top pitch is proper loose.
waydan - Lead O/S - 12/Apr/14 with Adam Buldock, El Swiftos
Fantastic climb, and a strong lead by wayne, I have as of yet never been so scared on a second, I think it was the atmosphere of a multipitch sea cliff, and perhaps that this is right at the very pinnacle of my climbing ability. First pitch is lovely, hand jams all the way would love to lead it in a single pitch scenario, second pitch the 5b crux was definitely squeaky bum time. The crack up to roof is straight forward enough and with a slight bridge and good hand placement you are on to the face where you are presented with an ever tightening crack and a glassy face, I kicked my feet into the crack and went for the crux, had a little slip, but with numb fingers carefully sorted feet out and pulled up on crimps, crux sorted. Third pitch is chossy crap, would never like to lead it exposure is pretty massive by now too, fantastic day in all could have been warmer, really enjoyed climb. Feels like a benchmark day

It started to rain half way up and we got soaked. 3/4 up veer a bit to the left onto Prayermat (also an E1), which was just about ok in on the wet rock, then went back onto "Loose Women".

Lead crux pitch, clean but with much hesitation at the crux moves. Good moves in a good position with brilliant protection. Close to HVS.
lrandall - AltLd O/S - 13/Aug/10 with Max Adamson
first taste of culm - pulled quite a bit off on the way up the first pitch - as a result I never really relaxed whilst leading the second pitch. Some nice climbing and I think it only felt hard due to the mind block going on.
Top pitch is a neccesary evil to be able to leave the route.

deklan - AltLd - 04/May/09 with julie
Led P2 and P3. Really good route. I guess it's graded for the "atmosphere" but the climbing felt really only HVS (and maybe soft in the grade even then). It's a lot easier then "Matchless" for example. Still, good line & lots of gear - a real classic Culm route. Top pitch is a 45 deg grass slope but not too bad really.

Surprisingly solid and amenable first two pitches. Glad Chris led the last. Lovely popping out into the sunny bluebell wood
cornishben - AltLd O/S - 19/Apr/09 with Chris Sims
Fantastic, great climbing, strenuous crux with lovely moves, make sure you continue with the 3rd pitch to enter The Lost World!
crobinson - AltLd - 18/Apr/09 with Tom Last
Led pitches 1&2. Got lost and fell off on pitch two, don't go up the slab! Good lead on pitch 3 from Chester. Definitely one of those routes I'm really pleased to have done. Not the sort of cliff I'd usually get on, but this route gives an excellent intro. The wood at the top is gorgeous. An excellent adventure.

Cool, pitch I and 2 nice, went into gully for pitch 3!! What a pitch ;)
