Gemmazrobo 21 May AltLd Tried to lead overlap, nae commitment, fine on second, f6a+ boulder problem-6a tech, top crack pitch is 'ard and I stood on a peg. E3 5c would be fair imo.

Ali D 12 May AltLd I lead 1, 5, 7. Achieved the 5c move through the second overlap by pankacking my body onto the slab. Just about worked. Unfortunately I'd slipped off and grabbed a cam before this! The climbing lower on the route is sensational with good features to guide the way. We tried to get access to the top pitch of the pause but found this to be a sandbag as suggested in the latter guide. The 6a pitch is hard and definitely not e1 with one point of aid.

alexanderforsyth 7 May, 2017 AltLd RP Such an amazing day out! Beautiful weather, and totally dry. Lead the 1,4,6,7,8 pitches, including the hilarious Moustache pitch. Managed to onsight all but the 7th, taking a fall on the tricky mantling move at the start. Managed to onsight the 8th pitch with numb fingers, super psyched. the hairiest part of the whole climb was the walk off!

madeleine 7 May, 2017 AltLd Epic day out. Rocked up a little late for such a big undertaking (for us) but we got it done! Xander lead 7th pitch clean after a slip, then onsighted the 8th pitch! Super cool to watch - until this route he'd only lead E1 (really proud of him)!! I pulled on some gear on the top pitches... as it was late (and I was struggling!). AWESOME DAY

arose 5 May, 2017 AltLd Ended up with the even pitches. The 5a pitch with no gear is pretty easy. The 6a pitch is hard! Fell once on the first 6a move but was fine second go. Did Agony the same day (much harder overall!)

Finlandia 12 Oct, 2016 AltLd dog Classic with all that entails – great line, great setting; 15m runouts, sandbag grading. Up to pitch 6 this is a fun, stylish & slightly scary E1 5a with reasonable gear where you want it most. P7 well protected but way harder than 5c. P8 solid E3 6a on its own, more endurance. Some pitches short, we ran 2+3 together still only 28m. You'll want a good range of cams from small to medium-big. Nice comfy stances.

Loved the second 'quartz vein' (looks like feldspar to me)pitch, 30m and no gear :-)P6 seemed desparate even at 5c, getting late and Helen tired so had to frig it. P7 felt fr 6c - 7a?First peg fell in half as I clipped it - eek! Many points of aid used as now very late. Missed exit path and did a pitch of vertical heather, got down in the dark. Fun fun fun.

henwardian 16 Apr, 2010 2nd dog I wouldhttp://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/addlog.html?climb=458# give pitch 7 6a rather than 5c and climbing it free cannot be less than hard E3, even with plenty of pitons on the last pitch. This does not detract from a stunning climb however. It just makes it the biggest sandbag I've ever climbed (and I mean that).
