MarkFoster 15 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Good climb, really nice&dry still. Gear is a little spaced but better than expected. Went wrong on P4 (too high) so missed P5 and scrambled up to the easy way off.

griffithpatrick 18 Mar, 2015 AltLd O/S Wet in places. Very cold. Numb feet. Very badly protected. I soloed the second pitch (climbing was easy though). Uninteresting moves. Got late. Abseiled down on pitch 5 which was wise because we only had one head torch between us. I lost a walking boot. Must be on a ledge somewhere. Very ambiguous route description. Definitely not 3 stars as it said in the book. Moss everywhere too. Slimy. Crap. Cold. Dark. Dingy. Bad experience.

Big Lee 7 Jul, 2013 AltLd O/S Felt more like an HS 4b. Gear was a little sparce in places but never any fear of falling. A good route but it didn't feel worthy 2 stars as too many grassy ledges (which were wet today).

sebbo 6 May, 2013 AltLd O/S Enjoyable romp up some quality rock although there were a couple of small wet sections - to be expected since it's the bit of Idwal Slabs that gets the least amount of sun. Last two pitches above Grassy Terrace were sweet - stay far left for a steeper & more technical alternative to the route.

Pete Nugent 18 Apr, 2011 AltLd Left about midday. I did p1,3 & 5. MG finished up pitch 6. We then climbed Lazarus & the Groove Above. At about 6.30pm we were the toilng up the slopes towards Gray Slab/Grey Arete, but turned back deciding we would be out of time. A wise decision - we would have struggeled to get back in the dark. Did both GS & GA later in the week - neither is a pushover! A good day out.
