Traverse OK... Route clean enough on big pitch. Headwall requires some commitment... Got quite pumped and sketchy way out from runners. Landed on belay by skin of teeth.

Linked first pitch of vertigo into main pitch of grand alliance which seemed logical.

Lead the hard pitch. Mentally tiring and quite tricky to read in places, you just have to go for it!!

Seconded the crux pitch to Adam - felt very hard and a spooky traverse on the second.

Fantastic thin moves through the traverse and upper wall. The prospect of a messy fall always on my mind. An excellent route!

CMoore 01/Jun/16 Lead O/S

Felt alright, although the crux felt quite bold and the bottom traverse just required confidence. Good route. Very happy to lead it!

Tom.Priestley 01/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

Lead P1+2 together to below the main pitch. Gutted about giving Chris the E4 tick on the main pitch, very soft for the grade tho felt more E3 5c.

Led P1 and P2 as one, had a bit of rain/hail as I was seconding on the crux but the moves weren't as hard as expected so all was fine.

harry_lewis 26/Apr/15 AltLd O/S

Led P3, totally awesome. Bit dirty and mossy in places though, first ascent of the year apparently?

Ace. Led p1 and p3. Started up p1 of The Shroud due to greasy rock.

tebs 04/Sep/14 AltLd

I came off seconding the traverse. Reet tricky. Moves on the face above harder but more positive. Bit like prana but the hard climbing goes on a bit longer.

with Dave Wharton
AJM 03/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

Led the main pitch. Excellent route, interesting line with the delicate traverse and then a spacey feel to the crux.

Tubs 03/Jun/13 AltLd dog

Excellent space-walking route and a good lead by Andy on the crux. The first pitch is a solo but fortunately not hard.

with AJM
tim newton 01/Jun/13 AltLd O/S
andyinglis 01/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

Ran pitches 1 and 2 together (5b). Crux pitch (P3) was easier climbing than Prana.

with Guy Robertson
Misha 01/Jun/13 2nd O/S

Total quality. A puzzling technical traverse followed by a bold and tricky crux. I didn't find the crux too hard (unusual for 6a for me) but that's probably because I was seconding! Good lead from Tim. I led P2, which had a couple of 5b moves and then easier ground on lovely incut holds. Actually slipped off trying to go direct up the dirty arete at the very start of P1 but that was just me trying something silly, the sensible start is just to the right of the arete, which is where I went second go!

Lead 2nd & 3rd pitch. 2nd very nice bold moves on the slab, 3rd traverse was wicked but sadly had a fall from the top crux, fell badly and couldn't finish it. Good up til then!

lobbed 30ft from top of crux. Sideways rock 5 at undercuts held it. Landed at the thin traverse with a bust ankle. Considerably bolder than I was expecting!

Awesome climbing! Got to the undercut's, spotted what looked to be a reasonable hold and went for it,turned out to be poor and my confidence nosedived, climbed back down to the undercut's only for Andy to tell me I had reversed the crux! Lead back up to the top feeling rather stupid.

i led the 4c & 5b pitches and Kev did the hard work on the 6a pitch! All I remember is that Kev took forever on the top slab and I kept thinking he`d come flying off down over the overhang and that he kept saying his gear wasn`t the best,and it was a bit of a run out! and that i was freezing on the belay and could hardly feel my fingers and that traverse under the overhangs looked desperate and Kev had hardly put any gear in it! He didn`t come off of course,and I made the traverse with numb hands and found the top slab desperate but 2nded clean,and was very proud of Kev`s lead.
