Lead all pitches, felt hard and scary for grade but maybe I was having a slightly nervous day! I'm sure there are 5b moves in there somewhere.

100th extreme lead. Started up crack, got pumped and moved L to finish up the mantleshelves. Super climb and a really nice day out

Tony lead P1, P3, and I did P2 (the 5a way). The 5b way looked vegetated and maybe wet, but I didn't realise the 5a way was pretty scary. Great climbing nonetheless.

Misha 26/Sep/15 AltLd O/S

The only (mostly) dry bit of the crag, just as well this was the route we wanted to do. Didn't look amazing but turned out to be good fun. Phil ran P1 and P2 together to avoid F2 fall potential on the start of P2, plus it's a much better belay by the holly tree. I led the top pitch, which had some nice moves. I forgot my rock shoes in the car so did the route in approach shoes, which made it a bit more challenging!

Done the best way with the fun run out up the wall on flatties, but probably best not to fall off, you might not deck....but it's not going to be good!

joe.91 23/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Awesome climb! Lives up to its reputation, combined pitch 1 and 2 into one. Recommend belaying at the holly tree rather than at the flakes. Went for the original route, easy climbing but run out.

with Dot
AndrewP 05/Jun/15 Lead O/S

Ran P1 and 2 together which seems sensible if you go for the bold option like we did. Belayed at the holly which is now 95% dead (good wire backs up). No sign of any peregrines. Great route.

Great climbing. although not difficult serious in places. sustained interest for every pitch and hold appear when you want them as well as gear (for the most part, each pitch does have serious sections. hence the E1 grade)

Led it OK on 2nd attempt and andy led next 2 pitches in fine style as I started to feel rather sore by pitch 3. Kids, if you're reading this, Always wear a helmet! AWESOME ROUTE!!

Superb route! never too hard, prob only HVS, the 5a moves felt soft.
