We found a owl/other large bird chick nesting in a hollow near the top, would avoid this route until the nesting seasons is finished to avoid disturbing the bird. It also stinks....

Clim,bed up and down the start several times before committing, turned out easier than expected. The rest was then harder than expected. Moved right to the arete at half height for a rest - mistake, moving back again became the crux of the route! The gorse near the top need a trim.

Another great warmup?! lead by Charley. Am rubbish at laybacking but had two bomber handjams but was struggling to work my right foot up to the break and couldn't sustain the position so came off...had another go and managed to thrutch my way up somehow this time. Well protected but awkward as f***!

charley 26/Feb/12 Lead O/S

Awkward start!!! Due to me feeling weak & rubbish, I didn't jam or layback but did it in my own unique, special way. I'm not 100% sure what I did but it worked...

First fall on trad gear. I tried to climb the start by hand jamming and got myself into an awkward position. My hand slipped while I had 2 pieces of pro. The first pro did not hold (a too small cam which I placed in a panic!), the other did (another cam which I placed not in a panic). I made my way through lay-backing.

An enjoyable lead - quite tough to start with, hanging off and laying back - but got in a good finger jam and a fist jam!

When I first led this a few years ago, I had to push through a gorse bush to get to the top, and then had to make a belay using gorse bush roots. Although Pete didn't get the full experience, thanks to whoever has trimmed it.

Had to back down off this in July due to inexperience on grit (never had to commit to a layback before) and it being a really sweaty day. Felt much more comfortable today, but after the initial, well protected layback move, it offers little of interest.

Climbed to the first gear placement before the crux and had a real hard time placing something good. Downclimbed back to the ground and started again. The crux layback move is fun but the rest of the route is much easier with good gear all the way. Had a foot slip off too, very scary for just a moment
