63m, 3 pitches. Start in the corner by the fallen block.

1st pitch - polished start that must be bridged and laybacked, very pumpy but short. You do need a good selection of cams. Place gear up high (over the first overhang) before you start and ensure your belayer pays attention as there is a risk of a ground fall. Place more gear around the second overhang and mount the crux. The climbing then becomes easier, continue up the arete and then scramble into the cave (thread and peg belay).

2nd pitch, leave the cave boldy, traversing slightly up and to the right into a chimney. Climb the chimney (small wires) to a small ledge (peg). Step left and a little up until you are right under the overhangs. Traverse left (exposed but on good holds) and then step down into a niche for belay. This pitch has heavy rope drag so pay attention to runner.

The 3rd pitch is straight up (small wires) to the great ledge (various tree/block/nut belays).

Use the main abseil station on the great ledge, a pair of 50m ropes just reach the ground.

Julesthe1st 8 Jun AltLd O/S Cold day for June and blowing a gale which added to the experience. First pitch benchmark HVS 5B. After that easy climbing but in some wild positions. The cave is up and left after the thuggy start. Looks like some people fail to find it. The climb wanders all over place. Good rope work needed.

powelli 15 Apr AltLd Lead P2, which is quite an adventure! Almost had a sense of humour failure, but looking back quite enjoyed the wandering exploration and exposure. Although leaving the cave into the unknown took some convincing, there's a bit of loose rock around so be careful. No idea why others run P2 & 3 together, the rope drag would be horrendous, but each to their own. Tough start on P1, smashed out by Mary and the ever-faithful offsets.

Stone Muppet 10 Jul, 2017 Lead rpt Line of chalk seems to miss out the cave, and go straight up via another 2 peg belay from the top of the arete on P1 to the chimney on P2. I didn't take this line, but given the number of Valerian-assaulted loose blocks near the cave, it might not be such a bad idea next time, even if it does mean missing the eponymous Angel's Eye itself. I think the guidebook overeggs the start a bit. It's perfectly protectable with nuts; if you place them well and your competent belayer stands close in then a ground fall is unlikely. It's hanging on to place them that's the problem!

Steve Bartle 22 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S Great route and definitely worthy of 2 stars. P1 is quite pumpy but there's actually pretty decent footholds and some rests, although be prepared to reach up and grab dusty/dirty holds. P2 is bolder (micros definitely handy) and exposed but not hard. P3 is easy and short but has some suspect flakes.

Made some strange noises making the step across after the chimney. In situ gear is of good quality. Good effort by adam on p1. Rested on gear but persevered like a boss and got it done.

Went way too far up the arête - 8m with no gear, to a bit of tat on a peg. Called for slack and got "Off belay" in reply. Got back on, spotted the obvious cave far below and left, and downclimbed (easily) to it. Sat in the cave for ages while Chris did P2, with no sight or sound of him. Eventually he ran out of rope, and still no sound. A helpful lady on another route relayed shouts for me, and I finally got going. Nice easy wandering pitch, with very little gear to remove. Felt very exposed. Chris was at the great ledge. I didn't spot the second belay either. Dunno if we were off route.

pheotleyr 30 Nov, 2013 Lead dog Didn't dare to commit to the second overhang at the start for quite a while. Heavily dogged. Probably wasn't the best "warm-up". Really nice route thereafter. Linked second and third pitch - works well if you place little gear and extend it a lot.

This led to fun reversing a traverse pitch, solo in near darkness, out of shouting distance of second, then cleaning the route abseiling off a single piece of pro (the jammed hex at the start of the traverse) in the dark. Also managed to get a rope stuck, and had to return to retrieve it in pouring rain a couple of days later. Just to top it off I also managed to drop my nice Android phone down the route when retrieving the ab rope. Not my most successful climb ever! ;-D
