A stupendous route in a truly beautiful valley. Quite an epic day which could have been made easier by adseiling from the third belay. When I go back I will be taking some 11mm rope and a good Mailon to back up the belay and make a good abseil station. The top out and decent was fun and exciting but took ages.

Super route with a mountaineering atmosphere.

Had considered it as a potential teaching route with clients. The first 3 pitches were good, but the 4th and subsequent shinanegens to organise a descent makes the route inappropriate for teaching on. May be a guided route if weather further west is pants.

Second time here, this is a great climb with a mountaineering feel, as long as you choose the "Alternative Finish" 4th pitch to the left which is excellent. Descent is tricky. The top-out puts you on a narrow ridge of large pinnacles. The ridge is traversed to a vegetated shoulder. The descent gully is to the right (facing the crag) from here, and includes a "diff down-climb" of about 4m which felt harder to me, I was glad to be on a backup rope and will abseil it next time. Then ascend over a second grassy shoulder and walk down from there. Bring suitable footwear for the steep grassy walk off. Be aware this climb may take longer than you expect. We were in no hurry and spent 5 hours including descent, if we were rushing it might have been 4.

I did the traverse pitch. Nice route until the top where it deteriates into rubbish

tres crap finish - better in trainers

bsparky 23/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

Add two pitches of easy climbing to escape from the top and allow a couple of hours for the decent. The top of the third pitch requires the use of green holds (grass and heather) as it is so over-grown. Quite an adventure!

James_Kendal 29/Jul/14 AltLd O/S

The standard pitch 4 is terrible. Couldn't see the descent gully in the dark, so we added two pitches to get to safe ground on the very top of the crag and walked off another way. Might have been quite a fun mountaineering finish if it was still light!

Sue Underwood 29/Jul/14 AltLd O/S

Some good bits but lots of vegetated bits that spoiled it really. Not an easy top out - added two pitches for safety. James enjoyed the ridge - our unofficial pitch 5.

choose alternate last pitch, maybe got lost as it felt a little more like vs but hs but was nice climbing nonetheless.

Twenty years since I first did this route so had forgotten any detail. It is a really worthwhile mountaineering route (meaning there is some steep pasture on one pitch and the descent requires a bit of hillcraft) a bit along the lines of Gillercombe Buttress. The left-hand finish is equally as good as pitches 1 - 3 and recommended. Unfortunately pitch 1 has a crux way harder than anything else on the route - more like HS. DO TAKE YOUR APPROACH SHOES FOR THE DESCENT!

I led p2&4. Hot sunny Bank Holiday - had the crag to ourselves. 2 teams arrived as we were finishing. Painful walk off in rock shoes! P4, Chose alternative finish - very good

a nice route - enjoyed it all the way - even the bizarre topping out, when we had another 2 pitches to get to something safe to descend.

Give your self enough time for the descent as it can take a fair while to get back off the top.

Great first three pitches. Protection bit sparse early on. Top pitch rubbish. Lead 1 and 3. Sadly lacking in bilberries.

Traverse across to right above overhang on pitch 2 looked quite bold for severe, but holds were good. Ate loads of juicy bilberries towards/ on top. Belayed the first part of the descent. OK thereafter.

missed the supposed 'proper' descent route and carried on up to the top of the crag for another 4 pitches across a ridge, a worthwhile mistake because the listed descent looks terrible.
