Okay, so top roping a classic like this isn't best practice - and wasn't us - but i think otherwise it's almost a solo.

Disgraceful, i hope they soloed it afterwards

What a bag of cocks. If they can't climb it then there are loads of good easier routes nearby.

Having spent lots of time on & near to this crag, I've witnessed plenty of mini epics on this route - a total head game. Can understand the desire to top rope it first before going for the lead, which I think they did. The landing for anyone unfortunate enough to deck off this route would be distinctly unpleasant.

Is it worth roping up for? I do know the place, and find the hype unbelievable. It's nearly as small as Stanage in height, and I can't see the point in climbing there either.

Whether or not to rope up is up to each individual.
Don't remember any hype about the place, but the rock is superb in my opinion.
Don't you bother roping up at Stanage? Met some people out soloing a 200m route, but that's up to them.
If you can't see the point in climbing there, maybe look elsewhere, there's no shortage of other crags.
