37m, 2 pitches. From the main cliff, start on the far side of the pinnacle. Climb the face straight above the centre of the rocky platform.
2/3 of the way at the break where there is a overhang on the right hand side, go left of the 2 old rusty pitons to a small cave.
Go up the large jamming crack - maybe the crux - and to the top. Can also be climbed as a single pitch route.

Lead as one pitch on a single rope. Didn't bring any big gear so the crack at the top was basically a solo with added rope drag. Oops. Pretty simple stuff though, nice rock, obvious moves, really great climb. Be aware when building belay that 90% of the blocks at the top move

Something that squeaks is living in the hole by the pitons. Not taking any big gear wasn't the best decision I've ever made.

Already seconded this one a couple of times and finally got on the lead. The laybacking section feels a lot more serious without a rope above you, but a great route. One to repeat again and again.

P1. Took a while to move up from the big ledge near the first (rubbish) peg. That's the crux of the route. Take plenty of medium nuts and draws (especially if doing as one pitch) Also used two medium/large cams in the recess belay (plus a large nut) so maybe double up on them so you've got some available for p2 (v short anyway)

Last climb if the day on my first real rock trip. Loved it, clean climb to the first pitch and then learnt how to double belay for the second pitch off the cliff/cave but couldn't reach certain holds where the route continued left so climbed straight up which apparently was a harder route (orange wall- didn't know till I finished the climb) but there were little cracks and holds which are brilliant for my small hands and feet - clean climb, amazing view definitely a must for your books

This is bloody embarrassing...seconded this six years ago and thought it was OK back then, so started to lead this, backed off with all my gear still on the rack. Then in my morose state set off as the second with all my gear still... I'm blaming my crap climbing on the weight of all the gear plus Rich's (the lead) stuff. Coming out of the cave I couldn't pull up and over and ended up dangling on the bloody rope. At that point I thought, sod this I'm packing it all in. I actually thought I haven't got the strength to prussic up here, I'm done for... I'm packing it in.

Huw lead P1 to the optional Belay (Before the traverse Left) then I lead P2. Really nice pitch with a lovely lay back and a good pull up over a block with what almost seemed to be purpose made pockets as holds! - Amazing climb, Great finish at the top of the pinnacle, Beautiful views and well worth the 3 stars!

What a fantastic climb. Fancied I could have led until I got to the layback at the flake - it was raining a little and the stone was slippy, but even dry that would have been a challenge. Will go back and lead the first pitch, at least, later this year. Brilliant start to climbing in 2012.

Excellent climb with lots of gear where you need it. In situ thread (black rope) seems to be in good condition as of 03/09/11. Minimal rope drag by clipping right rop for last couple of bits of gear before the thread and then using left rope for the layback at the top. Great moves in a wicked situation!

Lovely route, really enjoyed it. Not much polish either so gets my vote for better route than Vertigo. As for the grade, now either this was a very easy VS or my sport climbing has effected my trad climbing. I'm thinking after some of the routes at Tintern I've led that this was a piece of cake so maybe the sport climbing is paying off .. one way to find out, do the HVS variation next time :-)
