Did in two pitches. Tom's first second.
yorkshiresherpa - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/14

In 2 pitches, don't think this deserves its star though. Maybe if it was much cleaner.

Tom Dent - Solo O/S - 25/Jun/13

The initial ramp is grubby and overgrown, but the moves off the ramp, to the ledge, and the top section made it worthwhile. As part of my Burbage Valley run.
