Alpenglow 10 Jun AltLd O/S Remote crag in a wonderful location. Stayed for 2 nights, 1 camping and 1 in the 'rustic' barn. Heathery approach to the middle tier was pretty sketchy (45 degree heather pulling with a 100m vertical drop below). In 3 pitches, led P2. Fantastic route, great exposure on P2. View upon top out was the best I've ever seen.

Samuel Wainwright 3 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S First pitch was perhaps more committing than I was expecting. The remaining pitches were fine though and perhaps VS for those would be fair. Topped out through a temperature inversion too which was brilliant.

Anti-faff 27 May, 2018 AltLd O/S I've wanted to do this route since I first started climbing. Worth the wait. The perfect route? Abbed in down Carnmore Corner as the heather scramble approach looked like death on a stick.
