Mid pitches prob worth the stars.

Only did the first 6 pitches, of which about 3 involved real climbing as opposed to scrambling, but was really fun, and awesome to go so high up with amazing views of the surrounding area. Rapping down was a pain in the ass because there were so many ledges and places for the rope to get caught. But it was well worth the afternoon!

Juan S 24 Mar, 2016 AltLd Lovely 10 pitch climb with a short easy grade 3 scramble to get to the top of the ridge. Really well bolted, pleasure to climb. With a 60m rope we linked pitches 1&2 (Wei) and 3&4 (me) together. Did 5 (wei) on its own. Tried to link 6&7 (me) but ran out of rope - set up a belay on a spike 10m from the end of the pitch. Wei led p8, I led the last two pitches. Really lovely easy climbing (walking at points) p1 to 7. p8 is grade 5, p9 grade 6a and p10 has a couple of moves of easy 6b which could be aided if needed. Descent: walk down and right (as you look down your path down) until you get to a col with a path down to escalera arabe.

ewanjp 27 Dec, 2015 Lead O/S Easy to pitch 9, this is a 6a in the local book and i'd agree. Pitch 10 is a 6b+ (!) in the local book, probably a bit over graded i'd say a few moves of solid 6b - would be harder if I hadn't chucked in a heel hook at the start. Lovely climb - did to pitch 8 twice - first time we ran out of light and abbed down in the dark - total ball ache. Walking off is much easier!

I wouldn't recommend abseiling because it would be awkward. We ran the pitches together until p9. This works well on a 70m rope. I led p1&2, 5&6, 9, 10.

Some of the pitches are much easier than those given, some are like scrambling really and all are on pretty good quality rock, apart from the 6a pitch which is pretty scrappy. Took us around 3.5 hours to ascend and 45 mins walking off back to bags.

kylo-342 ?Jan, 2014 AltLd O/S Excellent route. Did it in 6 pitches with an 80 metre rope. Last pitch significantly harder, but there are enough bolts there to step in slings and get over the crux easily. We scrambled up to the top of the mountain (great views) and then walked down (leftwards) easily and quickly. Didn't take food/water, just our walking shoes. Got up and down in about 2.5 hrs.

mmmhumous ?Oct, 2013 - Only did the first 100-150m (given 4 and top 50 route in the book). Felt more like a grade 1/2 scramble and definatly not worth any stars as a climb. Ran 2-3 pitches together, each time swinging leads. More walk than climb...hopefully the upper pitches are worth the 2 stars the route now gets now that it's been extended.

givemetea 2 Jan, 2013 Lead O/S I really underestimated this after reading the Rockfax description. The move off the belay on the final pitch is really quite hard (UKC reckons 6a+ which sounds about right to me). There are loads of pitches. We abseiled off in the dark. But it was great fun ... just much more involved than expected ... glad I had a head torch with me!

Brendan 8 Jan, 2009 AltLd O/S The Rockfax guide says 120m but it's more like 300m! Looks like it's recently been extended, it goes right to the top of the cliff and the top two pitches are a bit harder, last one's maybe 6a? There's a superb scramble to the summit after the bolts run out, really worth while.
