hague.chris 15 Sep Lead RP Should have got it first time but didn't rest enough at the rest and then messed feet up. Pretty soft as it went very easily next go even though it was boiling and my fingers were sweating loads. No idea how it got all the stars. Carrie was nice enough to belay me up it :-)

jsmcfarland 22 Jun Lead O/S Probably some of the best climbing I've ever done. Read the route perfectly and was properly 'in the zone'. Tricky crux and absolute pump-fest for feet and hands whole way up. The top section is fantastic, still very fall-offable up there! Proper fallen in love with Taff's Well this trip. Definitely coming back here
