JamesColeman 14 Jul, 2017 Solo O/S Approached direct from reservoir. Climbed around 10 meters of first pitch with ruck sack. Downclimbed due to poor conditions. Scrambled to top of ridge. Conditions brightened up so decided to leave ruck sack at top and downclimb entire route. Took around 1hr. On climbing sections the rock is very solid other than the first pitch. Nice route. Climbed back up route (just under 30 minutes). Nice route with lovely views. Hiked Nantlle Ridge afterwards, returning back down to Nantlle at obelisk. Lovely day.

Rob84 17 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S Absolute garbage - scree arranged into a ridge-like formation would be a reasonably accurate description. It's basically a poor quality, dirty, loose scramble with the occasional very short step of actual climbing. Not sure how it got into the select guide or two stars on here, but do yourself a favour and go literally anywhere else.

tom bre 11 Jun, 2016 AltLd O/S I lead pitch 1,4+5, 7 We ran 2+3, 4+5 together though this did create rope drag. Really good & enjoyable - some really obvious loose rock to avoid at the top of pitch 1, pitch 3 has great situations.

steveshaking 6 Jun, 2015 AltLd We climbed this thinking it was Mallory's Ridge, not overly impressed with the guidebook's labeling and descriptions. We thought the crux pitch not to be 4c! but I would also say its going some for a VD, more severe 4a. I actually found the last pitch stiff in a traditional type way. Nice route.

belaleaderdave 7 May, 2013 Lead gets progressively harder the higher you get. climb consists of lots of short pitches broken up by sections of scrambling, this makes it very time consuming. the rock on this route is crazy slippy when damp but after a few sunny days it makes for a brilliant adventure with some great views.

ChuckstarUK 28 Jun, 2009 AltLd O/S The "finger stone" seems to have long-gone. The traverse across is leathal - better to drop down below the scree and walk-up alongside the dry-stone wall. A great multi-pitch route. Care though: lots of loose rock and the one pitch is just a precarious scramble. Ends with a sting in the tail ;-)

djones66 ?May, 1999 AltLd Well worth doing, as long as you accept that most V Diff of this length have some not-so-pristine bits and some walking/scrambling in places. There are some good bits of 'proper' clibing on thsi route, and the final corner/groove could well catch out the unwary!
