james.pilbeam - Lead dnf - 05/Feb/12

Last pitch, went off route onto something steep and hard and fell off then found correct line and finished ok. Last pitch much further right then the rockfax suggests.
John Mcshea - AltLd O/S - 19/Jan/12 with Cherry Bedford, Justin Timms

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 19/Jan/12

Led pitches 1-3, then abseiled back down to the bridge because we were both tired and the top pitch looked scary. Fell a couple of times at the P2 crux
Nick Russell - Lead dnf - 08/Jan/12 with Steve Shenton

Both 6b+ pitches. Fell off the top of the 1st one. Felt hard for the grade and the bolts are appauling. Trad rack required! And I can't belive how few assents this had had on here! Best route I've done in Chorro

Hidden - AltLd - 07/Dec/11

Pitch 1: hard start then easy to belay on new bolts. Only 2 bolts on pitch so gear is needed. Pitch 2: absolutely nails for 6b+. Wide crack is difficult to use as very dusty and flared. Pitch 3: about 6a in reality and it's all trad. Maybe E1. Pitch 4: overhanging crack all trad. Overall awesome route with stunning scenery and fantastic exposure!!! Would rope up for traverse to base of first pitch or a scary dws fall into the gorge is possible. The belay on top of the 3rd pitch is not next to the tree as per rockfax. About 7m higher up.

Brilliant. Harder than expected. Each individual pitch was good. Eugene said it all : )
jacobjlloyd - AltLd O/S - 04/Jul/10 with Eugene

Travesed along the escape ledge to the top of pitch 2. Top Roped P2 O/S. Great Route
BorisVBlade - AltLd dnf - 02/Apr/10 with Daniel Wong

Disappointed (but not surprised) to have to rest on the two 6b+ pitches. Both cruxes felt HARD. I wished I was stronger though, because the climbing would've been very nice if I'd been able to enjoy it! Notes on approach/protection: Advise roping up for the traverse in from the ledge you abseil to - felt pretty dicey! First two pitches not as "well-bolted" as the (new) guidebook says - pretty spaced, and a bit rusted; I definitely wouldn't have climbed the first 6b+ pitch without trad gear in places. The belay at the start of the last pitch is higher than the topo in the 2008 Rockfax guidebook would suggest; it's right at the base of the final wall, so the last pitch is quite short.
