John Bunney 16 Jun, 2016 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.

Ralfy 7 Jun, 2015 AltLd O/S Awesome route deserves 3 stars. The area is amazing, beautiful and atmospheric. Great exposure on the second pitch, which I led. Steep climbing, low in the grade for E3 and well protected until around the arête which is very run out but straight forward climbing, even the easy slabs had little decent gear.

Misha 30 May, 2015 AltLd O/S 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.

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 ***

ksjs 1 Oct, 2009 AltLd O/S 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.
