Different Steve - Lead O/S - 24/Dec/10 with Clare

Led both pitches. Disappointing: you would need to be very blinkered to make p2 feel like 6b

Hidden - Lead O/S - 09/Apr/10

Led second pitch up until just before the last bolt where I took a huge fall on the run out bolts, got lowered back to the belay and Rob finished it off. Took 3 abs off a 60m rope getting down, lengths in Rockfax definitely a bit iffy. Would do again if I went back.

First pitch great in its own right. Second pitch is a bit run out at the top, and like has been previously stressed - NOT 20m. It is around 35, but we got down on a 60m (we used the 6c lower off to the right)
funsized - AltLd - 14/Dec/09 with John Tanner

Great route, but 2nd pitch is more like 6a if you wander about a bit - looks dsparate with blinkers on! 2nd pitch also at least 35m, NOT 20m as in latest Rockfax.
