Led second pitch, felt steady on the traverse, then rather bold up the groove and slab.

Led 1st pitch, traversed in high. Couldn't make the step on 2nd pitch so traversed under it then straight up

Phil4000 13/Apr/17 AltLd O/S

Led 2nd & 3rd pitch. 2nd pitch felt bold up the groove. Excellent climbing & positions.

Lead pitch 2. Mega! Greasy holds on the crux which is awkward. The traverse was harder than expected as well. Then gearless groove to finish had to give myself a talking to before committing but felt good to run it out! Last pitch was pretty beefy too

John Bunney 16/Jun/16 AltLd

Awesome route. All the comments about the groove on the second pitch are true. about 8m of unprotected lonely climbing! The top pitch isn't too hard, but not as well protected as you'd expect.

A devious line skirting round the big overhangs. Led the crux middle pitch, good value at about 45 metres long and taking in various climbing styles. Fairly easy at E3 but merits the grade. Generally solid but you always know where you are and seriously run out on the second half of the pitch up the open groove and slab - thankfully easier but still tricky in places. Haven't had to contend with getting round grassy ledges at Gogarth before! The crux is getting onto the nose (worrying as it's protected by a less than bomber 0.4 cam) and the steep moves to get established on the traverse above (good gear). The traverse is good fun, easier than the Moon. Last pitch has a fairly short and sharp crux with good but spaced gear. Was chilly in the wind on the belay below the last pitch - unseasonably cold.

Wood for Trees 19/Apr/15 AltLd O/S

P2, hard cheese getting onto the nose then a pleasing romp. Dropped a quickdraw and a wire on the last pitch which landed rather neatly on the grass ledges on the slabs, feel free to pick up, easy come easy go.

Led P1 & P3. Epic route. I think we were on it for 4 hours!!! Struggled to find P1 belay - ended up belaying at a rusty old peg. Cracking little crux setting off on P2 and great top pitch to add to the experience.

Lead pitch 2 and 3. P2 is amazing territory, great exposure towards the end of the traverse, crux move probably leaving the belay and moving round onto "the nose". Good steep climbing when you leave the traverse, shame the upper slab is a bit vegetated. P3 is also no soft touch and solid 5b. E2 5b ***

Martin Haworth 05/May/12 AltLd O/S

Superb route. Led pitch 2 which had a hard start and the groove which was run out but steady climbing. Pitch 3 is no push over. Overall low in the grade but still worth E3 and you need a steady leaders head.

Alex Mason 30/Apr/12 Lead O/S

Went to do Kalahari Highway, but a party split the main pitch in two, so did this instead. Awesome pitch. Ran the final scoop out all the way which felt great.

An easy E3, but not one for keen E2 leaders; the groove is gearless and no path. We did this and The Moon on the same day; Kalahari deserves to be rated as an equal classic.

Great route. Make sure to approach the starting bulge of P2 direct from the L, rather than drifting into choss out right.

i led P2. great climb, very steady. i followed some chalk too far right from belay and wasted time on flakey / poor rock (the line is virtually directly above the belay [assuming you belay at the bottom of the corner / groove] and then moves right on obvious holds). when you step right (crux) after the rising traverse make sure you get some gear in at the bottom of the groove as this is gearless. the slab is no romp. top pitch done in near dark, nice moves.
