Calum Wadsworth 25 Jun, 2016 Solo O/S As an alternative route up mam tor when out for a run. The worry of an untimely death seemed less of an issue after the referendum results... Followed the description for the winter route moving left at the top.

davidalcock ??, 2012 Solo Done drunk, no sleep, at first light, after a row, after two weeks of rain. She did it in pyjamas. Great route. Think we trended right towards the top. E9 2a.

Andrew Barker 30 Aug, 2011 Solo Good dirty fun. Not as hard or as scary as Hard XS makes it look.

RHarding 17 Aug, 2011 Solo β OH MY GOD! This is not a scramble or a climb......Potentially would have been easier with ice axes, but then there wouldn't have been half as much fun. Fantastic climb. Steep, loose and very dangerous last section. First bit is ok, if you just keep going and don't look back. Awesome time.

Botion 25 Sep, 2010 Solo Done this a fair few times in summer conditions. Definatly an acquired taste, but well worth it for the awesome situations. Easy scrambling on shale/grass/rock until the final headwall, which is quite dangerous and rather frightening! Not as good as the gully on Back Tor as a summer scramble, but still great fun.

Tom Last 24 Nov, 2007 Solo O/S Oh my God this route is something else. None of the holds are attached to the face, neither is the grass or mud for that matter. The whole thing is like climbing up a down escalator. There is very real potential for all your holds to give way simultaniously on this route, resulting in a fall of potentially hundreds of feet. I notice it's graded here as a grade 3 scramble! LOL, that's somewhat misleading.
