Spectacular! What a treat, bits of drizzle didn't even matter that much. Lead evens.

Fantastic. As was said to me on the walk in, I can confirm that the top corner really is 'banging'.

Led all the pitches apart from 3. Pitch 6 was the crux pitch for me. Amazing.
cuthill76 - Lead - 06/Jul/13
Belter. Led all the pitches bar pitch 2 as partner wasn't feeling well. Good adventure but some mega scary rock fall when we were on the face and noticed lots of loose blocks at the top and on the summit!

Hard one to log, original plan was to do the needle so did the first 3-4 pitches before accidently finishing up the steeple but missing the 5c pitch. Still an awesome variation worth ****.

Caught it in a completely dry state. Almost took a whipper on the ramp pitch when a hold blew.
First E2 onsight for me. The day after, VS 5a felt like absolute limit.

awsome day out despite a few mares!, used one point of aid exiting the very wet second pitch and took a rest on the corner pitch after getting hailed on a bit, one of the most intimidating pitches ive ever lead, got to the top having used every single bit of gear i had except for my nuts racking biners. great route

Captain Solo - AltLd - 16/Aug/10 with John
Soaking wet despite the sunny weather. Ab off after third pitch. Should come back again after a longer dry period.
