George_Surf 10/Jul/17 AltLd O/S

Rachel led p1, no gear for a good 10m+ but the climbing isn't too bad. Gear from half way. P2 was ok up the ribs but i found moving left on to the slab tricky and a bit bold. The traverse left to the arête also felt a bit bold, old peg (ok) and a small wire to back it up. Not too hard stay low. Another small wire and then a delicate traverse left across a blank slab, also tricky. Rachel led p3 scramble out. Abseil down CDW

I led pitch 2, went too high on traverse and felt about E1 6a. Phil climbed it a low way but he still reckoned that was 5b

Hot sweaty day. Spent a while fiddling with the RP and talking myself into the slab move. Turned out to be really easy but it'd be a bad idea to fluff it. Felt fairly exciting even at E1. Gear on P1 wasn't that great either.

E1 5b in Tremadog guide which is more fair. Lead P1, Tim P2. Microwire to come round the arete.

First pitch for me. The slab on pitch 2 was really intimidating! Traversed far too high and made it very tenuous. Excellent route for the second pitch alone. Good lead by Al.

I led the easy pitch! This is E1 in GroundUp and Rockfax. Even the old Tremadog guide gives P2 5b so not sure why its HVS overall??

Led pitches 2 and 3 in one. The traverse on 2nd pitch is quite serious with poor protection. E1,5b is an appropriate grade in my opinion.

with Chad
Chad123 28/Jul/12 AltLd O/S

I thought HVS 5b fair grade as most of climb is a lot easier and thin move left well protected by peg and wire (stay low, much harder if you traverse higher). It is committing heading to the arete though so I can see why people think E1. **

Traversed high and discovered I could not reach (by about 3cm) to make the move, and took a 3m inverted lob - doh! Traversed low and made harder moves to gain arete from below the second time. Very good climb.
