Not particularly hard. Seems there is two ways to do the top; one taking the crack-line on the right direct and one looping left and balancing up the slab before rejoining just before the chains (this seemed more natural). All in all didn't think it deserved two stars. Bottom half of the route is very unmemorable and a little overgrown, and even the top is nothing special. The routes on the first half of the crag are much better around the grade IMHO, e.g Ugaloo etc.

Lost the race to the rain. Traversed in the middle section from the neighbouring Motley crew route, which caused extra drag at the top. Indeed, some interesting moves in the top section.

Clean, was going for the on-sight but one of my climbing partners just wont stop talking - a constant stream of on-sight busting beta. Seems to have seen some traffic this summer, is clean and the finish is lovely. Solid 6a!

Not very good - don't understand how this is rated as a classic, even by ban-y-gor standards.

Finally! Makes me wonder what the fuss was about on my previous assaults on this: I just did all of it, quite smoothly. Really fun and very pleasing to tick this off at last. I think my balance is improving, or something. Found so many static positions that I'm sure I hadn't achieved previously.

Ugh. Hoping to get this cleanly this time, instead fell off repeatedly in exactly the same place as before and took even longer to figure it out. However, I think the thing I ended up doing on that hard bit might have been better than what I worked out last time?

Cool climb with great views! I only fell off on one section (getting up to the hand-traverse) but there were a couple of other parts I probably would have found prohibitively hard and scary to lead.

Great climb .. don't need to be strong to do this route, just look for the foot holds. Good start and then good top 1/2. Would give it 3 stars if it wasn't for the ledge @ 1/2 height. I'd say this was a route that by itself makes Ban-y-gor worth a visit.
