24m, 2 pitches. 1) 4c, 14m. Climb the left-hand crack (loose blocks) to ledges then traverse right to pass the arete to a comfortable stance. The first pitch of Apollo is just to the right and is better (5a) 2) 5a, 10m. Finish up the tough crack to a superb juggy exit. © ROCKFAX

riff156 - Lead O/S - 25/Sep/11 with Jo Smith

Struggled with lowr section, pulled into right hand off width and decided I did not like the look of it- scuttled right on the lower break to a ledge and belayed. RT led the top section in good style. IMO, better to forget about the first section & just do the second half of the route.
Pete Nugent - AltLd - 23/Sep/11 with Richard Toon

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 18/Sep/11

Led the first pitch with the worthwhile 5a start. Had a right faff with the off-width (good job I was wearing Rach's lycra or I might never had made it). Decided we'd had enough after the first pitch knowing Chequers Buttress was just around the corner.
