missed the first couple of pitches due to tide and high swelljonnysims - AltLd O/S - 01/Sep/14 with Mike Conlon
Even though were were there at low tide on a day with low winds, there was a huge swell, and when going for a look to see if I could get round the corner to the first pitch, I was drenched by a big wave. So after I dried off we traversed in to the top of the first pitch. Considered abbing in to the start but this was also getting hit by the waves.
Where the normal route traverses left across a flake and back up a groove, I took the steep flake on its right hand side, really good and easier than expected, maybe HS 4a for this pitch. Finished off with the Armchair - not VS 4b as claimed by Rockfax, more like S 4c (4b if tall, 5a if short).

A lovely sunny evening, myself and Jon headed down to solo the route. The tide was high so we had to skip a few pitches, but it didn't spoil the fun. One hard move was exciting, due to lack of reach and fatal consequence of a slip.

My first multipitch expedition. Had the ridge to ourselves in blistering sunshine (note to self: more water and sunscreen). Early pitches atmospheric - booming waves. Later pitches feeling quite exposed. Lost a sling on a late thread anchor as second couldn't extract it. A gift to whoever climbs it next. Excellent day out. None of the climbing is hard - The toughest part is getting to the start. Highly recommend.

Led all pitches. I was a little underwhelmed by this route. I thought that the first pitch was stella, but after that there was little climbing and a lot of disjointed scrambling, even if you keep to the crest of the ridge the whole way. A great day out, but possibly it doesn't live up to the hype.

Fairly technical for the grade 1st & 4th pitches. Got stuck with loads of rope drag on the 4th pitch as you go along the ridge itself!
Lots of traversing/ down climbing so you need a confident/competent second.

A real fun outing, and had the ridge to ourselves even on a Bank Holiday ! 3 really nice pitches, the first one having the best climbing (and being a bit tough for VD IMHO) and others having superbly exposed positions and superb views. The scrappy intermediate pitches were spoiled for me by excessive rope drag. Would solo it on a repeat.

Didn't do the first pitch though as huge swells that day with waves breaking halfway up the first pitch even at low tide. Simul climbed the whole thing, coming together and swapping over every couple of pitches. Lovely climbing on good holds all the way and sling placements everywhere on the second half of it.

waydan - AltLd - 02/Nov/13 with Adam Buldock, El Swiftos
what an amazing climb, although we only managed the first 5 pitches it was fantastic, the descent was brilliant, first time i have had to ab into a climb, first sea cliff, the waves were coming in hard and fast some up to 25ft, swifty belayed us round the edge on to start of climb, wind was really picking up probably about 40mph by this point and it was whipping the spray up the chimney of first pitch, we were drenched in seconds and so was the climb, lucky gary goretex was stowed. exhilarating would be a good use of the english language, it was albeit sheltered from the worst of the wind, after we reached the top of the first pitch the wind was really picking up, we had to crawl across traverse it was so powerful, climbed dry chimney on second pitch as i came through end of the pitch the wind nearly blew me back down! comms were nearly impossible but felt at ease climbing with swifty and wayne, the wind was now gusting at 60mph, it was then we decided to ab back to the main path as safety was now becoming a real issue, cant wait to climb it again and complete it one day soon
adam84 - 2nd dnf - 02/Nov/13 with darren swift, wayne killerstein
Solo. Tried to by-pass a group of three by climbing up right hand side from base. Arrived at the neb to find another group climbing. Waited for the second group to pass me, downclimbed left of chimney and set up abseil. Abseiled down to base. Then top rope soloed the first two pitches and soloed the rest. Did the traverse line three times due to bag getting stuck. Realised on 2nd traverse (in opposite direction) that the corner crack to top and then back down can be avoided - but not as much fun! Caught the group up again shortly after. Lots of sitting around waiting but lovely views so not so bad! Took ages due to traffic and must have totalled 250+ meters with all the back and forths. Lovely route.

Led pitches 1 (as two pitches due to congestion), 4 (neb), 5 (traverse/arete), 7 (perched block). Ran led 2 and 6, Alamin 3. Escaped after p7 (at 9.30 pm!) due to failing light.
Blisco - AltLd O/S - 26/May/13 with Ranveig Berg, Alamin Zindanee
Started late - got to the ridge around 10 and queued for hours while a succession of teams who were probably out of their depth crawled along the ridge staking out intermediate pitches and coached complete novices along behind them.
The climbing was very good and interesting but all too brief. I probably spent around 1.5 hours climbing and 8.5 belaying or waiting.
We finished @ dusk.
A good day, made epic by not getting up early enough to avoid the queues and the freezing wind!
Would like to do it again one day in a slick 2 on a still calm day early doors.

Nice route, particularly enjoyed the first two pitches and shuffling around the block at the top. Probably spent more time route finding than climbing!
jamespilgrim - AltLd O/S - 26/May/13
Our second attempt. This time we were the first to arrive with no-one in sight until we got to the top of the first pitch. (Last year we gave up. We had arrived just after low tide, but there was a long queue. After almost two hours we decided that it would be a long day of waiting and turned around.)
Climbed as a group of three. Accidentally split the first pitch up into two as I was unsure of the length of our new rope. (2nd part led by HR) Run 2nd & 3rd pitch together. Led 4th pitch (cold & windy). Run 5th & 6th pitch together due to missing the correct line to the top of the ridge. Moved together for most of pitch 7 and 8 (last pith led by HR). Finished after less then 4 hours.

2nd attempt on the ridge after turning back last year on sight of the queues. This time first on the crag with next group arriving when we started P2. Split 1st pitch in half. Extended the traverse on pitch 5 by mistake but it was a good line! Moved together for pitches 6 and 7 without too many problems. I led 2nd 1/2 P1 and P8, ST rest with KM helpfully guiding the way and reminding me to place gear, always helpful. Took under 4 hours.

Stunning route, with incredible exposure throughout, can't recommend it enough. Set off at 8:30pm from bottom of pitch 1, just as the sun set and low tide had been reached (hadn't stopped Rob getting a complete drenching moments earlier mind). About pitch 4 the conversation goes Rob: "Its getting dark quite quickly isn't it", Me: "Yes, the sun just set Rob", Rob: "Did you bring a headtorch", Me: "Of course, we're climbing at night", Rob: "Oh, I didn't think I'd need one, the sun doesn't normally set so fast". Ab'd off in the dark at pitch 6 down to the grassy ledge and scrambled back around. Silly Rob.

Sonya and I pretty much made it up as we went along by stringing some pitches together and some not, and soloing some parts. There were two groups who were climbing in threes ahead of us with beginners amongst them, and two experienced pairs, all in a traffic jam on P1 so Sonya and I scrambled up onto P4 from the non-tidal platform and finished the climb long before the first group made an appearance on the ridge.

Moving together practice. Good route, slightly iffy weather seemed to put the crowds off and we had the ridge to ourselves. Bottom was very wave washed and slippery so we roped up just before the end of the approach and I promptly slipped and fell hard on my arse on the narrow sloping ledge, proving it was a good choice!
Did the 'VS' finish - not sure why VS though? It's one comparatively hard move but you've got gear you could hang a car on above you while you do it.

Excellent end to the day started about 5pm. It was a bit exciting going round the corner to start the climb due to the sea.

Ly-Cilph - AltLd O/S - 01/Aug/10 with Robert D
A fab 3.00 a.m. start to catch the tide. Did pitch one with the dawn. Copped out of the final crack due to rope drag, tide worries, fear and wanting to let Patrick have a look at it. Awesome location for the first pitch. When the guide book says head right of the perched block suprisingly it means it, heading left was an interesting but futile dead end. A great day out.

Loads of mist, moderate splashings of wind and some light rain made it very atmospheric - particularly pitch 1 where you have gurgling water below you, nothing behind you and rock face in front. The climbing is as easy as you'd expect from VDiff, but daunting at times. Save some energy for the armchair - it's a lovely move.

A superb route with quality positions - mostly along or beside a sharp arete. The rock is peerless and pitch 1 not to be missed climbing steeply out of the zawn facing the main bosigran crag. We roped up to traverse round the nose to the start of p1 as the swell was huge and breaking over the rock. This was one hour before a low tide of 1.9m.

Thought it would make a nice afternoon's ease in to the year... VDiff? No problem. Maybe, with a rope, gear and a second; as a solo: VScary - I nearly lost my breakfast a couple of times. The chimney at the start is not nice when wet, the pinacles are more appealing than the polished traverses and as for the little (2m high) overhang about half way along? 'Please help me mummy!' In future I'm going to stick to bouldering when I can't find a partner. :-)

Amazing day out, started early to get low tide on first pitch, a steep (but wet) jug fest! Nice and easy climbing but some very exposed and run out sections. With the tricky approach i wouldn't reccomend this for novices. Missed the 'armchair' move on pitch 8 as it looked hard and we were all tired.

A great day out with blue skies and sunshine for our party of 4 pairs. Miss out on P1 due to big waves, so traversed along ledge to start on west face. Mostly pitched the route and roped together on one pitch. Well, i put all the gear in at start of last pitch, the arm chair, but i didn't have the balls to follow through. Climbed it on a top rope to retrieve gear. There's a good variety of pitches and definately worth three stars. Well done Kath and thanks for your patience.

Great route, my first real multi pitch. Lead pitches 1,3,5 and 7 while Andy lead the even numbers. The only difficult bit was the armchair on the last pitch, easier to climb up the left arm rather than into the seat itself.

From my climbing diary when i was 11:
"With the roaring ocean cm's below our feet, the first few pitches were hard going, but once those were completed and the sun beating down on us, we were on a roll. The end pitch was the hardest but a great attempt was had by all 4 of us even the two oldies, who did really well."

Nice easy evening route. Led first pitch, then moved together over the rest, with Oliver and Ian following. Gave up before the armchair due to impending darkness, disappointment made up for by a gorgeous sunset.
