80m, 4 pitches. This is a classic climb. Once at the bottom of the climb there is an old piton about 3metres up in the rock to the left, either use this or solo up to the first real belay point 10m above. easy placements here and a good view of practically the whole climb. The crack/chimney above this is narrow but deep often going back 4m or more. There are good ledges and foot placements for most of the climb and an abundance of welded gear remains in the wall. Guides mostly split the rest of the climb into 3 pitches but the next 2 pitches are easily combined as one. All the belay points are perfect with wide ledges or chock stones in the crack. The last belay has two ledges 3 metres apart, since the crack veers of here this is a possible abseil point back to the bottom of the y gully

Long slog in, but lovely sheltered spot climbing on nice clean rock. Scrambled up to the base of the slit then roped up. Chris ran the first 2 proper pitches in one and I took the last 10m to the ab point. If you're abbing back down it can all be done in one 50m pitch. Ps think I lost my wallet near the base of the route - if found please contact me, thanks.

Fantastic climb worthy of its 3 stars, rock was damp in places so started pitch 1 from the bottom of the scramble up to the first chockstone. Cold hands in the shade seems to be a recurring theme! Ab'd off and got one rope stuck, still on the route, its return would be much appreciated. There's even an anchor consisting of 2 nuts and 1.5 friend with your name on it... Partner cut some tat of a block that was very inviting to ab from but was loose and a suspect anchor...

Dripping wet with light rain throughout, but at least it was sheltered from the strong SW winds. A superb route despite the conditions. In 3 pitches, Carmen joined guidebook pitches 1+2, and led the final exit pitch. Next time we'll ab after the main pitches, or at least carry boots up, as the walk off was hideous.

Classic climb with attractive vertical line. Led pitches 1,3 (and 5 above crack). Pitches 2,3 are the most difficult. Snow/ice below and inside crack. Cold rock, cold wind, a few light snow flurries. Fingers numb at hardest bit in pitch 2. Took a rest on the rope before second attempt. Put on gloves after that, but took them off again when needed fingers. Rucksack was too big for this climb.

Ropes got stuck when we abbed in, so soloed first pitch, then had enough rope to do the second and it was all fine after that. Bit wet and manky but great to get it finialy done. Also scouted for winter, can't wait.

got it done eventually and well worth the wait! Bit wet and greasy which, coupled with hangover, made the bottom of the slit harder than it should of been! Top section was awesome! then rank scramble to the plateau and we descended in 50min to carpark!

Lead in 3 pitches, rested on rope 15m up as i was suffering from hot aches. Amazing climbs, no need for 4 pitches, could be done in 2. Advice would be to ab down from top of the slit, as next pitch is a dirty scramble, not worth it.

Went for a bit of an Alpine start. Lower half of the climb was very wet which made for some interesting noises. There's now a nut key at the bottom, bit of crag swag for someone. Soj lead pitches 1 and 4, I lead 2 and 3. Cracking day out.
