Led first pitch. Corner belay fine and not at all dirty as others described. Used one piece of gear as very good friction.

Very easy climbing, wasn't easy finding a decent belay on the route though

Climbed first pitch (scrappy, pulling on heather). Second pitch would have been nice, if it was dry

As I suspect with others, decided the corner of pitch 2 was far to dirty, so did the edge of the slab 'above' to finish. Gets the star for the first pitch.

friction that is only second to gritstone, very enjoyable route (routefinding is optional, protection is pretty sparse anywhere but the climbing is very easy. going into the horribly dirty corner as mentioned in the guidebook is entirely unnecessary)

Walk in as bad as it looks. Another slab route, nothing to differentiate it from other slab routes

Led P2. Avoided the v dirty corner by stepping left up to a slab.

Lovely climbing on good rock, excellent friction even after rain. There are a few sparse sections, but generally the holds appear where you need them (even when soloing). I found The Waved Slab (Mod) a much more scary solo. Walk-in from the old road is not as bad as it looks.
