bobstones 4 Oct, 2018 Lead O/S Lead all pitches. 1&2 together, 3&4 together (about 57m on twin 60m ropes), 5, 6 & 7 all individually as we weren’t quite sure if 6&7 would go with only 60m of rope, would be close. A good route, generally nice climbing all the way up. Pitch 1 & 2 are very polished and considerably harder than everything else, no idea how it’s only 5c & has a very 3* feel to it so weird, thrutchy and clunky climbing. Walked off as we fancied the ridge (which was quite cool) and it also looked like prime terrain for getting your ropes caught, think we were about 3.5hrs up.

sharpendclimbing 15 Sep, 2018 Lead Brilliant climbing, featuring a wide crack, technical slabs, traverse and amazing views. The walk off descent, though quite a trek, is nice, including some easy via Ferrara over the spine of quiquillon. The last pitch was the best IMO.

spragglerocks 26 Apr, 2018 AltLd O/S Led p2 & 3 (as one, missed the belay, creativity with quickdraws required), p5 &7. Fantastic. At end of p5 make sure you go to the East about 15m to find the next pitch (start by a tree). Rockfax description / topo mediocre!

Jonny Nick 7 Sep, 2014 AltLd O/S Great route. crux pitch is P1 with tricky moves low down. Managed to miss the chains on P2 so ran 2/3 together with a bit of dismantling quick draws necessary. :-) cool traverse on P5 with P6 and P7 being great leading to a cool top out on the summit.
