Hidden - Lead dnf - Sep/14

The longer 6a pitch on the left is a bit grassy. Recommend traversing to the 5c+ on the right instead, or bringing a trowel. Superb climbing until the last 2/3 pitches - chossy and forgettable.
Pete Houghton - AltLd - 10/Jul/14

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 25/Aug/11

A great climb, 3hrs to get to the base of the route, not 1hr 30min like the guide book suggests. Fairly tough as well maybe E2.
roberto18 - AltLd - 25/Aug/11 with Conor Cussell, Tom Nickols

Approach took far longer than the guidebook says, had an absolute epic, 32 hours on the mountain, the last 15-20 hours with no food or water. Still enjoyed ourselves thoroughly though :D Lead 6a and 5c+ pitches.

Ed F - AltLd O/S - 09/Sep/10 with Pete

Ben Briggs - Lead O/S - Aug/10 with Luca

Great climbing and superb feeling of being in a 'sea of rock'. Be careful of knocking loose stuff from the very top (easier) pitches.
