βeta: The top pitch is a nice intro to off-width. it was the last route of the day and I completely messed up the sequence before the crux and drained all energy. I look forward to attempting it again in the future!

Anti-faff 3 Jun, 2018 AltLd Proper 3* Fair Head special and contains everything that makes this place the best! Bridging, jamming, positive crimping, a finger crack, a wide crack, and bucket loads of gear! Solid lead from Masa on the first pitch, I just flailed my way up behind him and then shuffled up the wide crack at the top. A great end to a great weekend.

masa-alpin 3 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S I lead P1, and Tom did P2. What a varied route! It requires from fingery face climb, balanced perching with sholuder press, laybacking, bridging, jamming at all widths, and the icing on the cake was an 8-m 5a proper offwidth to top out. My head wasn't at the right place, physically tired as the last route of our 3 days climbing, but I managed to compose myself to my joy. But it took ages to lead P1, including climbing up and down at the crux.

Wendy Watthews 4 Jun, 2017 2nd It started raining as Beni finished the first pitch and continued while I was on second making the climbing interesting. The downpour set in properly for the last pitch and climbing could be best described as grovelling/ getting yarded up a gutter of a offwidth

davkeo 1 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S P1. What a pitch that was. Getting into the niche was a bit balancy. Looked initially that the gear above was poor but it proved to be good with a closer look. Difficult enough next bit on smears. Top pitch is a proper body crack. Think Ken got his knee stuck or maybe it was his head. Last route of an excellent trip.

khalidq 11 Jun, 2015 AltLd O/S I led the P2 off width. Actually I went onto the rope on P1 after trying to reverse back down from the crux. Got it by doing a delicate teeter from the left hand side. The hand traverse followed by layback was not the crux for us, it was the next move into the groove.

givemetea 4 Jun, 2012 AltLd dog Vince led P1 - super hard and sustained. Difficult moves as you go right into the 'pod'. I laid back and got a cool knee bar. I led P2 which was a horrible off width which gradually became a squeeze chimney. I tried to layback it and fell off just below the top onto Vince on the belay. Pretty sobering as it's only 5a!
