Fiona Reid 07/Oct Lead O/S

Pretty stiff move for 6a+ and badly positioned bolts made this rather unpleasant. Move the bolts 1m left and it would feel a lot less scary.

Given the bolting of this route, wouldn't have fancied leading it. Other than that, a fun climb.

Badly bolted, direct climb more like 6b, easier to go left but would very bad fall.

Climbed this super direct right to the top which felt like 6c

Awful, crozzly rock, poorly bolted, and a sand bag at 6a, more like 6b.

Really good climbing but with badly positioned bolts. You'll definitely hit the ledge if you fall at the crux.

Chris Craggs 14/Apr/13 Lead

Hard short crux (6b?) unbalanced and unpleasant. (534 - 1027)

Some rather odd bolting, more than you need on the easy bits, but unfriendly for the short at the crux.

Crux is making it through the scoop. Quite intimidating and 6a+, not the 6a in the guide book.

This is really the 6a+ with Ammochostos being the 6a (see Rockfax database for details). Good climb. Keep well to the left of the bolts. Balancey move at the crux,requiring good trust of feet, and a high step with right leg.
