Got seriously rained off in a major downpour and had to escape to ants crack. Everything got completely soaked and sandy. Returned a few days later and although I had to clean as I go managed a clean onsight. Well worth doing this ballsy climb

oldhippy 29/Aug TR dnf

Got 2 moves above the ledge at 1/3 height then couldn't find a hand hold.

Fran seconded, I came up after. Really good

Calum Wadsworth 17/Apr Lead O/S

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.

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.

bede.west 04/May/14 TR O/S

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..

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.
