first move seemed impossible till we found a little fingertip undercling which simplified it a bit. rest of the climb was nice, if a bit reachy, and slippery in the sunshine.

dannyboy83 - Lead O/S - 19/Feb/14 with Alex Hallam

Concur with Dan, I advise some kind of testicle protector and copious stretching beforehand.

could not make the final reach to the top and pulled on the rope. even rechy in the middle, top was just a reach too far

Getting off the ground was pretty ridiculous. Found the rest of the route quite tough but well protected, probably lots easier when its not 30deg!

rich_hw - Lead O/S - 29/Jun/13 with MartinWilliams87

And I thought getting established on Martello Buttress was silly. Took a few attempts to get onto the shelf (including landing bum first on a rock in the ground; didn't load any gear, can I claim an onsight?). The interest keeps coming higher up, but the difficulties are well protected and a bomber wrist jam allows for a great rest after the first crux. Glad I'm tall for the final long reach. Quality route, just a little short.

Arms too pumped after The Link and so handed the lead to Richard. Excellent little route with long reach to the top.
Steve Waters, Mynydd - 2nd - 14/Mar/12 with Richard Waltham

Certainly packs it in, 5b start, hard 5b middle I thought, pumpy and reachy top-out. quality little HVS..

dickie01 - 2nd O/S - 19/Nov/11 with Julian King

Dixie led. Myself & JC stuggled to get off the ground. Eventually, gave me a leg up to get established on VB - frustrating because I have soloed VB in the past. Good well protected climbing on Buitchers - must come back to lead once I have got my hip sorted!
