im off 04/Aug Lead O/S

Takes abit of nerve launching out from kg traverse but once you've done that you just keep going. Gear ok. Technical. Bridging. Not pumpy at all. More holds on it than you think.

I was huffing and puffing a bit by the top. After going through the roof at the wrong point/downclimbing/wires falling out, and felt quite dangerous too with somehow all the wrong wires

It was gripping watching Sam puff up this. Quickdraws were spent by the crux of KG so he belayed and I led through up KG.

I went up to Gimmer expecting to love Eastern Hammer, which I did, but I thought Equus outshone it for both position and climbing (albeit of a very different style).

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 05/Jul/17 Lead O/S

A lovely route that wanders to all the right places. The climbing in the groove is steady and well protected. The moves in to the groove were tricky with all the wet holds.

Welsh E3 innit.

Good fun route. First roof was commiting. Not too bad once I got going.

Found the gear in the groove very small and fiddly, very apprehensive to climb above it. Made it to the junction with KG but decided to finish up that as my nerves had gone by that point. Kudos to Chris for belaying me while I slowly jittered up it!

Ace route! Fairly cold (snow on ledges!), so the first roof felt a little stern!

Felt like steady E2 on second but I could reach the hold over the bulge easily and didn't have to worry about the fiddly gear (most of which is quite good, had to get the nut key out a few times). Good route.

Rachel Slater 25/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Found going over the roof nails, full stretch to fingertips. The groove was weird, you could only ever see one our treetop moves ahead but it was all there. Good route but hard, hard E2!

Up there with the best pitches I've ever done. Didnt feel hard for the grade at all. Definitely easier than eastern hammer.

Gear in the groove is fiddly as sin and didn't trust a lot of it. Steady but absorbing climbing up there. Did the tricky moves to cross left after KG and arrived on the small ledge. Started to rain and looked like it might settle in. Reversed back to KG and finished up that.

PaulTanton 17/May/14 Lead O/S

Great route. Committing moves at the start of the pitch. I got a bit worried that I wasn't gonna get any gear once I'd pulled into the groove. But soon find some. Very absorbing climbing once you get going.

Thought this was a sterner test than Eastern Hammer. Top end E3 in my book! Absolutely brilliant though!

top section after crossing kipling groove at KG crux is rather bold! Prob only 5a but still a massive run out to top.
