Fun!
Graeme Hammond 26 Aug Lead O/S Steep but on good holds, ace first pitch worth 3*s but let down by the scrappy upper pitch. Led both pitches but abseiled for gear so Jim could also do the first so also 2nded. Brilliant location.

Tim Sparrow 28 Aug, 2018 AltLd Every hold a jug. Every move needs a jug! (it is very steep but such a brilliant route). I whimpered a bit below the top of pitch 1 as it looked improbable and I was tired so belayed in the hollow to the right. Saw how to do it once my seconds were on the way .... Top pitch loose at start and end. Felt spooky as we had had a minor "incident" abbing into the zawn a year ago involving a loose block / leg interface and a consequent jumar assisted exit from the zawn. (And thanks to the nice man with the jumars who came to our rescue!)

Luke90 17 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Wow! Can't imagine how this doesn't earn a third star. Awesome moves in a stunning location with a unique musical twist. Loved it! Certainly a step up from Mad Hatters Tea Party, though that felt soft at E1. Soft E2 seems fair for this.

geoff b 5 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Wow! What's not to like? An isolated high tide toe of rock in the sun, amazing holds up unlikely territory, super gear & even a gong to announce your arrival. Strung the 2 pitches together for a brilliant 48m pitch. Best route of the weekend. Maybe E2?

al99 22 Sep, 2013 Lead O/S After the abseil I was a bit worried about the quality of the rock. Turned out to be really good, except for the very start and end of the 2nd pitch. I think with a bit more traffic this would be a bit of a hidden classic. The limestone reminded me of Cuba!
