Fatherof2 18 May, 2018 Lead In 5 pitches. First pitch felt hard and bold for 5c. Then keeps going with good holds spaced bolts and exposure. Great moves out of cave intimidating for second but there are a couple of pegs at edge of cave. You can ab on 70m sports rope but last ab at top of pitch 1 has no chain.

Alison Cairns 29 Apr, 2015 AltLd Another excellent route. Did in 3 pitches 5c+, 5c (to cave), 5c+. P1 quite hard, a bit polished and bolts a bit spaced. P3 wild traversing L out of cave - would poss be easier carrying straight up this on p2 and belaying higher.

Rog Wilko 28 Sep, 2010 Lead P. 1 only. This pitch is short on both holds and bolts. Good climbing, but I'd say 6a. It wanders around a bit, so maybe I missed the best holds.
