Billions of ants at the top of the first scramble led to a downclimb. Went and climbed Giant's Cave Buttress instead which only has crows to deal with.

Did the first pitch essentially of spinor (an e3 first pitch 4c), tried to lead, no hear, backed off. Andrew finished. Generally hard for vs

Lead the first pitch and most of the second before running out of rope. Descent off the top would have been easier with 2 half ropes rather than one single 50m to enable an ab off an already set up tree belay. Good challenging climb and first lead at that level outdoors.

Unbearably hot at Sea Walls, so sounded the retreat to the Amphitheatre. Good route. Placed my first knot.

First after work climb of the year, in the sun. Really nice route, especially the 2nd pitch as others have said. The brambles mentioned below seem to have gone or been reduced significantly. Led both pitches.

Steve Bartle 24/Jun/15 AltLd O/S

I lead the first pitch and accidentally part of the 2nd pitch too. I overshot the normal belay and took a belay at the top of the right-to-left ramp, just before the final left-to-right ramp. The brambles on the first pitch really are annoying and come at a delicate point where you could really do without the distraction. Some of the ledges are a bit dirty too (beware after rain!). All in all, an enjoyable route though, and the slab you topout on is in a great position. We added some tat to the ab point on the tree at the top of the slab, as the black rope looked pretty weathered and there was one other thinish piece

Melonfly 23/Jun/15 AltLd O/S

Led first pitch, bit run out to start. Some small hedges to pull through. Great varied route, least polish on gorge. Really enjoyed.

with Caleb
Kemics 23/Jun/15 AltLd O/S

led 2nd pitch. Top pitch felt hard to me. Great line though, quality climbing and features. It was a bit over grown and dirty. With a little more traffic it would be incredible

bought a fair bit of rock off standing on something I shouldn't have on the top pitch. don't think it alters the grade but be careful with the rock quality

Mantle amazement. Airy top pitch. Vegetated lower pitch - scary as holds hidden in thorns

Mike ran it in one pitch. Rope very nearly ran out. Pulled a solid looking hold off & fell. boo.

Ragingpossum 26/Feb/14 AltLd O/S

One of the hidden gems of Avon, that is well worth seeking out. Pleasant climbing on the 1st pitch proceeds the awesome 2nd pitch that weaves through E1 territory following rock reminiscent of Unknown Buttress. I led P1, Laura led P2

Amazing climbing on the second pitch, great holds which you rarely see on Avon limestone. Good gear as well.

Great route! Interest, variety, challenging...and it's not polished to within an inch of its life. We did it on the day of the 10k when the Portway was closed to give us a unique Avon experience - no polish and no traffic noise! Shhh, don't tell the others.

Really nice climb, but quite a lot of vegetation on P1. Got rained on near the top of P2 so felt quite tricky for 4c.

PaulWatson 21/Sep/10 Lead O/S

Nice route - 2nd pitch quite intimidating, initial ramp quite scarry - spent a lot of time sussing out the top move, but easier than it looks.

Chris Sansum 03/Jul/10 AltLd rpt

Chris P1, Gary P2. Gary ended up a long way off route after thinking the 'much steeper ramp' was a flake rather than a ramp. Had a slight epic after finding himself in E3/4 territory! He ended up down-climbing back to the steeper ramp and climbed it.
