Great route, didn't think there were any 6a moves but definitely worth E3! Found the crux section pretty pumpy and without much gear, had a few conversations with myself on poor rests.

I thought I'd got this until I spent too much time placing crap gear. A good route but hard to read.

Saw someone just top out this yesterday having placed 4 runners on a single rope so thought it couldn't be too bad. I later found out it was Caff.. I placed more runners - all I had actually. A head popped out while I was heaving mid crux "hey mate, I know you have your own problems, but have you done Gimmer String before?" I wasn't helpful. Very good, but Welsh E4 innit.

Awesome fingery climbing, first proper experience of finger locking.

Excellent pitch. Removed the stuck wire and cam on the way down so no in-situ gear any more.

Pulled a small pinch off trying to mantle onto the big hold. Move is still doable at the grade but a bit harder now. Doesnt make any difference if you go the easier cop out "devious" left hand variation.

pretty good, but its no powerglide

Awesome route! Really glad to have come back and got this after falling off at the crux last year. Thin fingery steep wall climbing in an outstanding setting. Numb fingers didnt help! p.s. insitu wires now gone. cam still there

As hard as I feared. Managed to get a few meters above the peg (there's now 2 insitu wires and snapgates). The climbing seemed very hard to read - not a jug in sight.

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 28/May/16 Lead dog

got up to the crux but hung around too long trying to figure it out and came off. took about 4 falls before getting up it - great to take my first multi-pitch falls. thought it was quite difficult but really i lacked commitment. after the crux it was fairly straight forward but i was ready for it to over by then.

mrteale 09/May/16 Lead dnf

Hesitated a little too long fiddling with gear and got very pumped in the process, finally went for the moves traversing out left and took a fairly large fall. Lowered off a wire and in situ cam. Fair bit of swag up there at the mo!

Not too pumpy if you step right to rest after the initial overhang ;) Great route, commiting.

Misha 25/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Great route, sustained but with some rests and the holds are generally pretty good. Had to figure it out in places as some of the holds aren't obvious but not sure there's any 6a on this, lots of 5c though. Generally good gear but sometimes had to go for it above the gear and the cluster below the last hard sequence through the top bulge wasn't very inspiring but probably ok.

Pumpy and a bit fiddly with gear (fixed stuff in a bit of a state) but brilliant climbing up the most spectacular part of the headwall.

Fairly sketchy attempt. Pushed through most of the pumpy crux section by the skin of my teeth, missed some gear (I think) and ended up fairly runout and very boxed. A scary few minutes trying to shakeout in a tenuous rest came to end when I thankfully found a good RP placement to lower off from. Definitely learned some lessons about pushing my grade!

with Jake Lloyd
jacobjlloyd 05/May/12 Lead β

Led on Jonny's gear past the crux, after he lowered off. Not as safe as I would have liked - we both must have missed a placement! Was glad of Jonny's gear, much less pumpy as a clip-up, and I knew the gear was good. Didn't finish up the HVS, carried on straight up after the bulge. Seemed like a better line that way - independent, straighter, more interesting moves, good quality rock..
