Conan 30/Jul/11 Lead

Perfect conditions but quite slow. The group in front did in 6 pitches so the teams were stacking up behind them. Nice day to chill out though!

with Clare A
Simon Caldwell 30/Jul/11 AltLd O/S

In 6 pitches as per the guidebook, I led the even numbers so I could avoid the 4c pitches, needn't have worried as they were fine. Didn't slow us down much, we still had time for another 3 routes! A great route, look forward to repeating it some day.

3rd time i've walked up trying to do it, this time we were first and We did it in 6 pitches as Simon wanted me to do the 4c pitches,which works well. Fun but busy, and then empty after the 3 early ascents! P1, P3,P5

Olli-C 12/Apr/10 AltLd O/S

Pete lead first pitch, oli bailed after the first pitch. i lead 2 and got lost ended up doing the crux of 3 instead of finding the belay which meant my gear was about 2m away, didnt know where i was ended up belaying in the middle of pitch three. pete followed, got stuck, pulled on the rope he wasn't climbing on the runner that it past through ripped and pete fell a couple of feet, we both freaked out a bit eventually found out where we were and made it to the propper belay there was talk of abbing off as we were both quite shocked and felt a little sick. pete was to shaken to lead so i manned up and lead the rest with quite a bit of hollow sounding rock and loads of exposure. took 6 hours.....epic.

Rog Wilko ?/Jun/93 Lead

Took about 5 hours owing to being stuck behind a somewhat incompetent party. The leader took two falls on different pitches! Full marks for ambition though.

A real classic, this one. I got the first and third pitches (guidebook 1+2 and 5+6). The first was a delight, continually interesting climbing. The start of the third has a traverse that looks intimidating but isn't too hard. The technical grade currently given here for this route seems wrong, I'd have said 4c was right.
