Not really Leopard's Crawl. Started OK, traversed the slab, but then went up a groove too early, and ended up on Pink Panther, bailing slightly left near the top of the crack. Belayed under the roof, then Jeb stepped right and across, aiming to get back on route, but in the end finished up Murrary's route.

Ali took the first pitch, I took the second. It's all about the first: really enjoyably delicate traverse; "imagine you're a leopard", says Ali. Only thing that marred it was a horrible wet, mossy groove up off the scoop to the belay. The second pitch was good fun at the start, but it's too quickly over - with scrambling up to the terrace. Lovely route, overall, though - on an "atmospheric" morning on which the crag was hidden in the cloud as we arrived at the tarn. (With regard debates about grades, I reckon it's certainly not an easy HVS 5a, but nor is it 5b. It's not sustained or particularly tricky, but it's fairly sketchy in places.)

Excellent route but certainly top end HVS 5a. Protection on the crux move isn't great but you're unlikely to deck out if you come off at this point.

Steve Waters, Mynydd 09/Aug/07 Lead O/S

This was on my 2007 Wish List after I shied away from it in 2005 over concerns about lack of gear on the initial traverse. Overall, I found the climb to be superb and varied. I would say it was hardish for the grade. I thought the crux was approaching 5b and I was almost off. Thankfully, I had managed to wedge a small nut in sideways to protect the move - so I was confident enough to just go for it.
