Pete_Frost 7 Jul, 2018 Lead rpt We traversed right onto War Drum after the tree belay, because the crack to the left seems to be filled with vegetation and the slab to the left of that seemed to be above the grade. That put us right beneath the 5b pitch, which felt strenuous for HVS. I used two small nuts in opposition to protect the moves out to a perfect nut placement in the roof just below the lip of the overhang. The cracks on the wall above will accept put plenty of gear - if you have the strength to hang on. Jamming gloves made this pitch so much more enjoyable for me. I loved the top pitch and Jammed Boulder Gully was dry enough to descend without the ropes getting drenched - bonus!

pauldrew 23 May, 2018 AltLd Did War Drum first so missed first 2 easy pitches. Led pitches 3 & 4 run together. Solid E1 5b. Dave did pitch 5, great pitch but felt more like E1 5b - maybe not helped by needing to clean it on route, but crack clean now.

caradoc 5 Jun, 2016 AltLd O/S Excellent varied climbing. The combined length of the first two pitches must be close to 50m, some debate about how far left to go around the holly, more like 4c. Second pitch is tough crack climbing and no more than HVS in my opinion. Film of our ascent: https://youtu.be/nfRK_i_778Q

Dizz 29 Jun, 2014 Lead dnf Abbed off after the 5b pitch as very green, raining, fell off the 5b pitch and liable to miss dinner! Tried the E1 variation first as cleaner but peg nearly rusted through and was suspicious of my gear - reversed the whole green slimefest rather than do top move!

Misha 27 Jul, 2013 AltLd O/S Started completely off route up Ghost Train (the 5b move to start didn't feel like the 4b warm up I was expecting!) but avoided its crux by following a dirty and bold 5a crack and corner. Back on track, led the P3 crux (great gritstone jamming) and followed air hard up the pleasant P4. The double ab down Jammed Boulder Gully was a damp experience.

Chris M Thomas 1 May, 2011 AltLd Another brilliant sunny day but strong easterly wind. This climb was pretty sheltered. With a 60 m rope it was feasible to run the first two pitches together but instead of following guidebook description for second pitch I just climbed straight up the niche behind the holly tree to the terrace at about the same standard.
