purplemonkeyelephant 22 Jun Solo O/S Great scramble. The only section we avoided was the steep wall lower down, the runnel and gully were both quite committing with a very dodgy fall area, could have got the rope out but would have been a lot of faff for a 3m section and the left way round was way easier and didn't seem like a total cop-out. Top section very enjoyable, great position and we had fantastic weather. My partners first time to Wales so she got a real treat.

mysterion 2 Jun, 2011 - Unaware that 90 per cent of Ashton's description relates to the last 10 per cent of the route, I misinterpreted his 'triangular buttress' for something further down and the true triangular buttress as his 'final rise'. So instead of going left of the true triangular buttress I followed a well-worn path right of it then up what turned out to be the exposed drop below the crux at the true final rise (ie: just beyond the ridge). Didn’t feel like backtracking at that point - moves up the 'final rise' were more difficult than I was expecting.

Feeling bold 18 Oct, 2009 - Opted out of the lower main wall but once committed to upper part of scramble opted for sling-assists for 3 exposed sections on slippery wet rock. Good day out overall.
