Tremendous route of great character. Slipped off on last hard move of top (crux) pitch but it did not detract from the experience on this great classic line. The crag is adorned with beautiful flora and fauna as it doesn't see much traffic.

Just dry enough to free...... ran p1 & 2 together. Great stuff!

Another great route from Hard Rock, led the first pitch the first two pitches were dry and great climbing. The third pitch was dripping wet and slimed so no chance of free so was forced to do in the traditional style. Can't see this being dry in a month of Sundays. Just 14 routes left in Hard Rock now, need to drum up some partners to finish the rest off. Please ignore previous comments about there are not many pegs in place , there are ample placements for wires and friends under the roof on pitch 3.

Fantastic day. 3 weeks of heatwave so this was the time to go. Stunnning crag and location. P1 & 3. P1 quite goey at the grade. P2 technical. Don't expect many pegs on P3 - one left on the crux.Dry apart from damp in the back of the crack. Tried crux several times the wrong way, before taking a different line, then easy - 5c tops. Feasted on bilberries on the top. Awesome. 1/2 of Hard Rock completed - in only 31 years!Better get a move on, don't think I will have another 31 years to finish it.

What a great route on such an impressive crag! Every pitch is really good, building up to a powerful and technical crux. Phil led off on P1 and didn't make it look easy - it wasn't! Pretty hard for 5a on the initial moves across into the groove. The suspended belay was reminiscent of Dreadnought. I led the devious second pitch, which had a tricky section and great exposure. Phil went for the crux but unfortunately got the sequence wrong and came off onto the stainless steel peg - the only good one on the route! I found that section pretty tough for a few moves, ended up doing a hard cross through with my left foot onto the good hold round the arete. 6a in my book. Could have done it another way but that didn't look any easier! The whole route was completely dry and pretty clean after about a month of really hot, dry weather. Loads of bilberries at the top and on the way down, which was a bit of a jungle bash. Only did this one route as had a leisurely start - quality, not quantity! Very pleasant walk in and out as well.

Led P1 and P3. Sensational exposure! 'French freed' P3 (frigged the hell out of it) as per Hard Rock protocol. What a route!

I lead the first two pitches for the third time, lee then aided the last pitch. the start of the pitch was the usual slimy wet stuff but it was nice and dry further on. great route, good to finally get it ticked off.

Two aid points under dripping roof !. I recall one was a old wire disappearing up into the roof with corrosion holding a crab with no gate to it. It is amazing how long you can hold your breath if you have to !!!

2,L,2. We experienced an earthquake whilst I was seconding the first pitch. I thought it was a jet down the valley and thought I was dizzy when the rock started to move. Then realised what it was.
