georgel 28 May, 2017 AltLd Great climb. Bolts are quite spaced on the easy pitches and a bit non existent on the last two pitches ( we found one on the last pitch ). Overall excellent with a great view at the end

Steve Waters, Mynydd 7 Aug, 2016 AltLd Early start (Left the car at 07:00; started P1 at 08:30) to (just) beat the hoardes. Led even pitches. Wonderful route in an amazing and remarkably 'friendly' mountain setting. The crux on P7 was a 1 move wonder stepping up high onto an overlap on small crimps. The only other tricky move was on P6 which involved faith in boot friction to overcome another overlap. Both well protected by bolts. Well equipped. No problem using intuition to find the bolts all the way to the top. Summit finish. Superb views. Pair of Royal Eagles overhead. Magnificent day. Back at car by 1pm.

fochocki 20 Sep, 2014 Lead O/S Great day, easy pitches were run out, crux pitch seemed harder than the topo suggested. 11th pitch easy to get lost and miss all the bolts. Also with Omar Saif (lead) and Emma Warner (second), and Monty Ochocki (lead) and Anthony Guida (second).

JimboWizbo 11 Sep, 2014 AltLd O/S Pitches 1 3 6 7 9 11. Didn't aid any of the moves. Second crux pitch felt as technically difficult as the first, but it is followed by an interesting slab that makes you work for the next clip

Simon Caldwell 18 Oct, 2012 AltLd dnf Only managed the first pitch. The wind was so strong that it was hard to stay upright at the belays, let alone padding up slabs. So saw sense, abbed off and walked up the tourist path instead.

brianrunner 28 Jun, 2011 AltLd A pleasant slab route which is safely bolted. The 2 cruxes involve balance moves thru overlaps. There is gear to pull on if required on both. Finishes on summit and you can walk off.
