Jim usher 25/Jul AltLd

we climbed this on saturday our first multipitch climb, jim climbed pitchs 1 and 3 and i done 2 and 4, we found the chimneys on the second pitch wet and slippery but passable, rain was on heavy by the time we hit the last pitch but we stuck with it, to bag our first multi pitch route, we have done a few climbs at the crags an found it harder than a v diff. great climb thou and well deserves its 3 stars

A heat wave in September! Bone dry and low 20's with no wind. The small diagram in Classic Rock is probably the best line drawing, better than the two guidebooks I own.

Got confused on the climb as described as a V Diff in our guide book but felt much harder. Not the easy into to multi-pitching we expected. Made it up the chimney (2nd pitch) and exited down the gulley.

atthedropofahat 02/Sep/14 AltLd dnf

Initial left slanting crack too wet to hold a jam and footholds terrible. Still don't know how I got up the flake crack, by the Scottish Rock Guidebook this is off route, but fear of a long fall onto the slab below prevailed against the slime. Abbed off as chimney was impassable it was so wet. Will revisit when dry.

Haha, the best VDiff in the world ..! Fantastic character oozing with interest...loved it.

adamarchie 20/Jun/14 AltLd

After camp below North Peak. I led pitch 1 (my first at this standard - v diff for that one). Bob led the others. Good chimney climbing and a very nice line. I cheated a wee bit on the second chimney - annoying! Good dose of sunburn: had sprayed for midges rather than put on the suncream! Got home just in time to get showered and changed for nights.

First multipitch of the year and Connie's first ever. Bivied on top the night before. Awesome but not without faff. Two big loose blocks on the final pitch. Ran the short traverse and 10m pitch together no problems with rope drag.

Two pitches, planned as alt leads, retreated and had to get laura to lead second pitch and got stickies lowered to me to continue as boots weren't cutting it! (supposed to be a VD but a guidebook interpretation error had us finishing S).

Wonderful, pure joy. Coming out of the cave to negotiate overhang is harder than the easy supposed crux. HVD would be a more accurate grade.
