murray 4 May AltLd Interesting adventure on the third pitch when i tried to force a different line up a totally blank slab- i ended up stuck on a tiny sidepull and a thumb press without the necessary psyche to commit to the scary friction moves above.. very grateful to emma and sarah for the top rope at that point!

Colin Dyer 13 Aug, 2017 AltLd A truly suberb route. Worth its stars, varied, interesting climbing throughout in a suberb setting. The offwidth chimney is nails. Worth noting this route takes at least a good two days of sun to dry.

Hugh Simons 13 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Led all pitches. Did the whole route in 4 pitches, linking 1&2 and 3&4 together. I found pitch 1&2 very hard, completely different technique required than any other route I've climbed. Lots of palming, smearing, hand and fist jams in the wet crack and back shuffling. Very chuffed to get up them, pretty exhausting. The 5b slab seemed easy in comparison. Great route, fully worth E1 to me!

metrorat 5 Jun, 2016 AltLd Had a bit of a mare on the first pitch due to my poor chimneying skills, rested a couple of times to deal with the calf pump and fear. Once I nailed the technique I pushed, thrutched and swore through the crux (harder than the 5b slab traverse imho) and ended up sat atop the chimney flake with much rejoicing. Led pitches 1, 3 and 5. Take a set of brass micros and offsets if you want any chance of protecting the 4b slab, I only had one which I squandered lower down. The mega runout made it all the more exciting though. Was jealous of klaus leading the superb 5b pitch, the slab was easy on second but would definitely have given pause for thought on the sharp end. Pitch 5 a straightforward romp and thoroughly enjoyable. Between the varied climbing, exciting runouts, excellent belays and the atmospheric positions I'd say definitely a 4 star route.

johannes 4 Sep, 2010 AltLd O/S The chimneys are brilliant, haven't heard myself swearing that much since quite some time. 60m ropes are just enough to run the top two pitches together if you belay from the left end of the crack below the big roof.

Feeling bold 28 May, 2010 2nd dog Started what we thought was the VS Hammer but we were right of the chimney start for West flank heading up a slab and crack start. Picked up with West flank from slab at top of chimney. Entertainment all the way on slab, crack, traverse and overhangs. A cool lead by Alex on a thrilling route, well starred. P1 I slipped down-climbing from retrieving gear.

THardSevere 23 May, 2010 2nd dog amazing climb. Dogged the chimneys a bit when taking out the gear though I think wearing a ricksack made doing it clean very difficult. All the pitches were superb. It says E1 in my guide book and gives it 4 stars. The "crux" wasn't that hard in my opinion.
