Elodie 14 Sep AltLd O/S Led pitch 2-4-6-8. Really cool varied pitches. The layback on pitch 4 is awesome and the upper slabs are .... Slabby if it's not your style!

eduardo 5 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S Brilliant route! Very diverse, a range of challenges. Led even pitches. 2 tricky cruxes in P2. Took a while to figure the starting sequence on P4, flake was easy fun after the tricky start. Nearly fell on the 2nd last 6a+ pitch - sustained at the start.

mattgrange 12 Jul, 2018 AltLd Good fun route, quite a few different 'cruxes', enjoyed most the 6b flake pitch and the superb technical moves on the pitches after this. Walk-off has a sort of 'Wye Valley via ferrata' section which would be horrible if wet.

Paul Sagar 6 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S A really good outing. Guidebook says 12 quickdraws, but I recommend taking at least 14. And the crux is not in fact the 6B pitch, but the heinous move to get past the overhang at the start of pitch 2. Fantastic climbing thereafter, with a very satisfying technical slab section on the penultimate pitch. Very much deserves its stars. Not to be missed.

jobangles 6 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Absolutely spectacular climb. Interesting all the way. Really varied. I'd say the second to last slab pitch would have to be my favourite. Felt harder than the supposed crux pitch, but I suppose that's pretty standard for slab grading!

Sloth Chops 2 Aug, 2017 2nd Amazing climb. Super tenuous slab climbing towards the top for 6a, chicken heads and adhesion! Very hot. Carried the big bag and fell off on an easier second pitch as I messed up a traverse while being pulled sideways on a tight rope. Bah humbug. The crux 6b pitch was one of the easiest.... Feet on fire from the hot slab. Great lead by John and good climbing by Beth

Thoroughly enjoyable despite the morose and uncommunicative German team behind who insisted on trying to crowd us at each belay. But justice was done when the leader peeled off the crux. Allowed ourselves a brief snigger. (Led Ps 2,4,6,7,9)
