140m, 4 pitches. The climb takes a line up the rock ridge which bounds thr RH side of great gully, good clean climbing in a very fine situation. Start in the corner at he bottom right of the gully.

βeta: Was my first multipitch climb, you begin to learn about rope management and route finding pretty quickly. Plenty of left gear along the route, possibly from people who left it on an abseil. Mostly slings. I wouldn't trust most of it from UV damage.

Lady_on_the_Rock 18 Aug, 2018 AltLd O/S Really good day out in a beautiful location. I think the final part of the walk-in may be the most difficult bit. Led P1 and P3 - HS in some places, mostly lower grades. Lovely friction on the granite. Used 2 60m ropes - didn't think that we really needed them to prevent drag, but glad of the easy ab off.

tim91 16 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Excellent route. Climbed as a 3 on half ropes. I lead pitches 1, 3 and 5. Caris led pitches 2 and 4, but stopped early on pitch 4 at good tat. Meant I had to lead the traverse into the VS 5a finish so was running low on gear for the hard section. Great day out!

Caris Mcknight 16 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Climbed as a 3 with Alice and Tim, with myself leading pitches 2 and 4 and Tim deciding to do the VS finish of the last pitch. Great day out, although I was feeling really sick from the top of the 4th pitch which made the ab off and the walkout pretty horrible. Nice climbing though! and my first multi pitch leads.

philippoc93 9 Jun, 2018 Lead O/S Great climb, HS at most. Mostly a scramble. Climbed with a 50m single but that was a pain with drag and walk off. Definitely recommend climbing with two 60m halfs for the long abseils

jcdavy 8 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S Did an alternate finish up to the left, head straight at the peg, make the left and then pull up on the high ledge on the overhanging wall below the triangular niche (protectable by the tall). Topped out and then traversed right and climbed round and up on to the nose before making the chains. Felt about VS 5a but could use a repeat ascent.

Conor1 21 Jul, 2013 AltLd O/S The scramble up the heather slope to the ridge was hard work and a little sketchy. Once on the route, protection and holds are plentiful. Done with a single rope in 6 pitches, leading 1,4 and 5. We endeavoured to follow the alternative finish, but may have deviated somewhere above the peg, as there were a couple of tricky moves right at the end which were harder than the supposed crux, which is a jug-fest. From the top, walked around to the river and then through some boggy, tree-strewn ground to the path - by far preferable (and likely quicker) than either the gully or abseil, either of which would leave you having to reverse the difficult approach. Great day out; highly recommended.
