2 pitches. A splendid route, climbing the pod and crack to a peg belay. The corner in the roof past 2 pegs. The peg belay is now very poor and it is advisable to carry on and complete the climb in 1 pitch.

In between rain showers, rope got caught on head wall and had to untie which added to the excitement...

In one long pitch, came off at the crux due to messing about with gear too much and not committing, pulled ropes and got it next go. Cheers to Martin for all the beta.

Best done in one pitch. Straight forward apart from one hard move.

salix 05/May/17 Lead rpt

Had to battle. Not enough in the tank for direct finish, so scurried right. Means I've got to do the bottom half again...

Richard Abel 11/Sep/16 Lead O/S

One of the pegs at the roof near the top broke when I went to clip it. There is other gear to be had though so no need for a new one.

Done in a single pitch, with an element of drippage on the first crack (i.e. it was wet). Didn't interfere too much with the climbing and all-in-all a great route.

Had the same excitement as gforce with untying a stuck rope above the roof. I'd say watch out for that, but I'm not sure what it is you need to watch for.

Mostly on-sight as had just seconded the route to the left that shares a bit of the traverse with this route. Had to fight all the way and the final roof is pure space-walking.

One rest to hammer out stuck nut. Felt alright though - would be a battle to lead. Crossing the roof is amazing!

Close shave. After feeling totally solid, took the mother of all whippers onto the peg after my hand popped from a slightly greasy hold in the niche. Ended up missing the deck by half a metre. The 'press on to the niche and then sort out gear' strategy kinda bit me! Gave my belayer the fear and a few blisters.

We got worked by this one! I fell off just before the niche, should have kept going and stopped putting so much gear in. Ginger managed to fall off the start of the second pitch too....good climbing though, will be back!

Exciting finish involving a rope jamming under the final roof. Had to untie from it and unfortunately the other didn't have any gear on it for a long way! Made very tentative steps over the last metre or two.
