βeta: Excelent route! Did the first crack on solid handjams, thought I was a gonna until I discovered the essential hand hold at the top of it. The flake crack is great, bridged half-way up to bang in a big cam and laybacked all way up. Very sustained. Definatly my best yet!

βeta: I thought the layback looked quite tough (in terospect probably because I couldnt feel my fingers in the cold) so jammed all the way up. Qutie baggy handjams/fistjams in places so it was a bit awkward and at the bottom of the upper crack it was imporssible to avoid the other crack, but stll a good route.

βeta: Great route, nice variation on the three 'sections'. The layback was brilliant - there's a couple of nice ledges on the right, so if you want to place gear you can just pull in from the layback and stick in a jam, stand on a ledge and whack in a cam, and turn it into a layback again, ace. I found the last metre the trickiest as I'd blocked the handhold at the top of the flake with a hex, managed to use an arm bar and almost get in the off-width to escape, really thought I was coming off!

βeta: People with short legs may find passing the holly distinctly prickly in delicate places.

βeta: I thought this was a great route. Very gritstone. It doesn't get any stars at all in the old BMC guide so I was pleasantly surprised. The middle section of the top flake is definitely fairly tricky.
