Think i went on this in 2006 and fell off but couldn't remember much about it. Stamina in a shambles at the moment. Got pumped out of my mind on this!!

Duncan Campbell 14/Aug/16 Lead G/U

On Wald's gear. Great to clean this one up. I wasn't far off doing it when I first tried it a few years ago and I wasn't too far off falling off having got quite cold walking over for Wald to look at Weasel's (it was wet) then belaying Wald on this.

James Oswald 14/Aug/16 Lead O/S

Really good - technical middle section then a pumpy upper crack. Harder climbing in the upper section than rimsky but with a good rest beforehand. So pumped at the top..

James Oswald 14/Aug/16 2nd rpt

Seconded after Duncan did it on my gear.

Brilliant steep climbing, gear looked good but was very boxed on the second. Great position.

Rich Kirby 23/May/10 Lead O/S

This deserves 3 stars!! Better than Rimsky.

Got really pumped on this, had to dig quite deep. Fantastic route, feels steep at the top but like ksjs said good gear, although i found the big cam at the top really useful, easy to place (size 2-3)

What a difference getting lots of routes in makes.

ksjs 31/May/09 Lead O/S

really good, 2 stars rather 1? easy start leads to technical bit (size 2 or 3 cam handy but not essential). pull into the bottom of the shattered groove and blast to the top - pumpy but positve. straightforward if you can recover on good holds. despite explicit mention of a 'large cam' in both North Wales Rock and CC guides, you dont need this - the gear is good from start to finish and you can lace the upper section if your arms permit.
