6 pitches. Quite bold and exposed. Concerns have been raised regarding a large loose block at the second belay.

Type 1.3 fun - Chris led 1+2, 5 I took p3+4 pretty bold reachy moves at the top, very poor conditions giving that its December covered in damp slime certainly made it feel more like 5c footholds were useless Tough at e2 5b - awesome route definitely 3 stars *Slipped off after the route going up the big fat green, sludgy, muddy, wet 4b off-width which was running with water & is made for people with tiny legs & anything else I can blame

Brilliant! led p1+2 and 5. found the end of p4 amd start of p5 a bit wild...then again tis december. E3 5c felt more acurate though might have been the weather/ ]conditions. Mainly Type 1 fun, although Scott fell off at the top cos he ain't a trad climber

P1,3 & 6. Traverse of p3 is fantastic & gear just keeps coming. Thanks to luke for leading 4&5...a pleasure to second! No peg on p5.

Done in four pitches. Hol - pitches 1 and 3; me - pitches 2 and 4. I led the intricate and slightly bold 5b pitch; Hol led the traverse 5b pitch. What an amazingly absorbing and memorable climb! No one else on the cliff all day. One thing to note - to the left (as you look inwards) of the belay at the end of the bold 5b pitch (before the traverse pitch) there's a very large block that appears to be cracked all round - no idea how stable it is, but it sounded quite hollow.

Brilliant climb, classic bold E2 5b. Marked as six pitches in the select guide, I ran 1 and 2 together, than Tom ran 3 and 4 together. Tom took a worried looking selfie with me and a number 1 nut in in the background on pitch 5, which was class. Hell of a walk in for one route, but at least it was a good one.

Superb lead by Ethan on the slab traverse. Looked bold. I led p2p4p5p6. P4 felt bold, glad we took the big cam. I was thrown by the big detached block, got pretty gripped, amazing position though. Nice walk in, one for a big link up day in future.

With direct start-lead the second 5b pitch which had a balancy and committing traverse to reach the insitu sling runner-continued up the steep wall- no sign of peg on upper ledge and pressd on to safety a jibbering wreck ! Pauls 5b pitch balancy and very bold. Great Route.
