βeta: The obvious place to belay after p1 is a big flake on the left. It feels OK but looks detachable and a safer option is to take the hanging belay further up.

DaveWhite13 25 Jul Lead O/S Led both pitches after nic backed off first pitch. Practically wish I had too. Pitch 1 - green, uninteresting climbing with crap gear leading to an uncomfortable semi hanging belay. Pitch 2 - awesome climbing with plentiful bomber gear throughout. Definitely not usual standard for3 star fairhead route. Would give the first pitch a miss in the future

davkeo 22 Jun AltLd O/S Impressive line. Led pitch 2 which I found pretty hard through the off-width, much huffing & puffing. Start of the route is a bit dirty & the top 5 meters or so is vegetated with mossy/grassy ledges. Everything in between is clean and the climbing is very good. Well worth doing & hard at e2. Last of the 3 star e2's at Fairhead.

Flavio 10 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S Not one of the best, felt like being back in a grotty Lancashire quarry. Only got on this because I left one half rope for Primal Scream at the top! Had to simul climb the last 7-8 metres on a folded 60m and just about managed to build a belay as Jenny got to the offwidth crux. Punter!

RKernan 1 May, 2017 AltLd O/S Led P1, which eats small nuts. Kyle led P2, which eats big nuts. Brilliant route. Crux isnt quite as desperate as it looks - but that depends on the size of your hand/fist

deepdiver 8 Jul, 2013 Lead O/S First pitch delicate finished with semi-hanging belay. 2nd pitch amazing with strenous layback on the crux. To protect this section Cam No 4 (Friend no 5) are usefull. Harder than Equinox, Blind Pew or Mizen Star and a bit easier than Cuchullain. Worth *** for sure.
