shaunhumphreys - Lead β - 22/Apr/15 with Dawn, franhammond92

Fran seconded, I came up after. Really good
Dawn_K_B - TR β - 22/Apr/15 with Fran Hammond, Shaun Humphreys

Was glad to lead not solo. Break nearish the top takes gear but there are still some tricky moves beyond it. Pity about the sand but still definitely worth doing.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 17/Apr/15 with Emma

amccann - Solo O/S - 17/Apr/15

Very poorly protected two thirds up, nice and steady climbing though. Full of sand and mud, clean holds as you go up. No particularly hard moves.

First outdoor climb after wrist injury. Rested once to shake off.
samvimes1982 - TR dog - 22/Jun/14

1 gear placement I think, just playing on the top rope would be a scary sandy lead.

I accepted there was no gear till the high thin break and just enjoyed the ride and buzz, nice enough climbing. The holds were more positive than the guide lead me to believe, a very easy but run out E1

Great route. did it on top rope but was a clean climb with no falls and could of lead it with a side runner.. gear poor untill high up..
cannotfindaname - TR - 27/Jul/08

good positive holds but they were covered in sand from the top, take take topping out there are lots of small loose bits on the top.
