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).

Did in 4 pitches (with a little walk along the ledge, halfway). Don't think I did pitch 1 exactly as the guidebook showed. Found pitch 2 to be the crux. HVD?

nice route, bit damp in places quite slow to dry this one, but it didn't effect the climbing in a bad way. Chimneys were actually really good fun!

Led pitches 1,2,4 and 5 (pitch 3 being the traverse across the terrace). Rock extremely slippery when wet (like standing on a wet fish according to guidebook!) - made the overhang at the top of the first chimney quite exciting (felt harder than Severe, let alone VDiff). Overhang on last pitch was easy in comparison. Excellent route.

Couby - AltLd - 03/Jun/09

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.

Nomater how sunny it is when you set off ALWAYS bring a pair of gloves when climbing a high mountain crag in april!

Superb climb! Lead 1st pitch and last 2 pitches. Last pitch is the best! Got a bit wedged with the rucksack in the chimney of the 2nd pitch.

absailed off at pitch 4 due to mist cloud and wet. will go back and finish another day. bloody wet and slidey, much harder than severe.

Nice route: lots of gear but a bit damp in places and the overhanging chimneys are strenuous; S grade from MCoS guide seems about right.
