67m, 3 pitches. The first pitch is a fairly straightforward but sustained steep crack/groove leading to a fairly committing top section with some loose rock. The third pitch is magnificent; climb carefully up and across for 6 m to get the first gear. Some stiff, well protected pulls lead into the main groove which has some great moves and more than adequate gear up to the break. The top crack looks hard but commit with good jams and layaways and it soon eases.

P3 only. Clean aid (nuts and cams) and cleaning training. Trickier than King Kong with good protection, although some placements were fidley. A few heart-stopping moments moving from aid to free.

Led P1, pretty bold at the top, and linked in P2, taking the corner groove at the right hand end of the ledge, which was bold and harder than 4b, think the line actually goes further left. Mark did P3, which is very good and has a double staple lower off to get back down to the big ledge / walk off. Evening hit on the way to Pembroke.

Andrew Sloan 07/May/16 Lead O/S

Led all 3 pitches. The first pitch was horrible and the line to follow was not obvious. In contrast the third pitch was tremendous, sustained and unremitting with a real sting in the tail. Made all the more difficult by the very humid conditions. Overall I would give the route 2 stars but the 3rd pitch on its own 4 stars.

Just p1 and 2 as it was getting a bit dark. Unexpectedly good climb considering how much it's neglected in preference of climbing the last pitch on it's own - worth the climb. Will be interesting to come back to compare to the last pitch.

Ian Stirrups 18/Aug/15 Lead

Top pitch only. It would be useful to split this climb in the list as the top pitch is really independent of the bottom 2 pitches. A lot of folk just do the top pitch which is easily the best.

Peter p1, Chris p2 & 3. 1 rest at the overhang where you enter the groove near the start of pitch 3. Hung around for too long trying to work it out. Should have just gone for it! I blame the 5.30am start. ;-)
