According to the logbooks I've seconded this (or at least belayed it) previously, although I don't remember it. Nice route and no pushover.

Gudge - Lead O/S - Sep/12 with Andrew Deacon

Tough little number, though ultimately it's a pity the traverse isn't longer. Paul led Gardoms Unconquerable to start off with.
