A good route with interesting climbing on all pitches. P2 is better than it looks if a bit of a traditional thrutch up the narrow chimney.

P2 climbs much better than it looks, interesting route overall with some wide bridging!

led 2, 3 and 4. A great fun route. A bit botanical esp on pitch 2 but brilliant bridging and a bit of thrutching. Felt like 4b all the way

kim.mulji - AltLd O/S - 04/Sep/11 with Ian Cramman

Not sustained but some good moves (crux overhang is fun on big holds) and the gear is pretty good. Nice route. Lead pitches 1 and 3

ablackett - AltLd O/S - 30/Apr/11 with Jonny

A very entertaining bridging adventure on an incredibly windy day, followed by fun scramble along the ridge. Howett's guide to final pitch is hopeless. A "non-obvious" traverse?? Not very helpful! Climb a good 20m past two grassy patches and take the pretty obvious overhanging jugs right to avoid the dirty finish to the main groove.
