Climb the rightward slanting corner well protected. Easy climbing straight up leads to a traverse left into the large cave 4c

Exit left from the cave (or through the back) a hard move following the groove above leads to easier ground 5a

Really fun. The rock becomes weird and sandy at at the break before the traverse, and placing gear feels futile in the weird sand-rock since it's all falling away. Most comfortable belay of all time though <3 Lead P1

Led onsight in my trainers. Really fun climbing, first pitch is pretty straight forward though a hidden hold at the end of the groove makes the crux of that pitch easier. Sitting in the cave made for a sweet belay, I would recommend this route just for that if nothing else. The crux of pitch 2 is pretty fierce and was touch and go as I was hardly using my feet. Great climb, not going to forget that in a hurry.

Ray started, but lost his nerve due to being over pumped as usual, quite a hard climb late in the day. Alternate lead, however strayed off route due to a bee's next convienently in the way, used route on the right to ascend. Didnt make it to the cave!!

first lead for me of the day, a little more run out than expected for the end pitch one traverse! but a fun route non the less, second pitch had 2 pieces of gear in before the first moves out of the cave area, then none until the top! lead both pitches.

I led the first pitch, Anthony the 2nd. The first part of the first pitch is good but the rock above it is rotten in many places (actually pulled off a 1/2 brick sized hand hold). Couldn't find any good gear placements to protect the easy traverse. If one of us had fallen off of the traverse then either I'd have ended up the start of Golden Fleece or Anthony would be on the opening moves of red rose speedway :-) Great climb over all but not sure about the top half of the 1st pitch .. I found it hard to protect.

anthonyp 25/May/10 AltLd O/S

Led pitch 2. Excellent climb - well protected at the crux. Traverse a bit interesting though as half the crag was about to come off in my hands!
