All went downhill here when I couldn't do the move, followed Conor up it and used the arete instead.
Tommy Moore - 2nd O/S - 29/Aug/15 with Conor Salisbury

Took a ittle time to find a non-reachy sequence for the crux, felt pretty smooth when I did. An improvement after dogging it a year or 2 back. Felt 5c to me.

belay bunny turned bad - Lead O/S - 05/Sep/12 with loundsy

A passer-by climber gave me some beta while I was struggling. The crux move was very reachy for me, a (very) shortie - solid 6b - it was the hardest move I have ever done in successful onsight on trad routes! Hence E3 6b for me. If it is 5c, then the overall grade should be E1 5c.

Hidden - 2nd β - 27/Jul/12

2 bastard hard moves and the risk of hitting the ledge - not a nice route

Nice climbing, just a shame the intrest is so shortlived. Well protected just before the technical 5c crux.
Brian Rodgers - Lead O/S - 18/Jun/11 with Tom

Chris Wright - Lead - 29/May/11

Thin move to get stood in the break - 6a?
Chris Craggs - 2nd - 10/May/11 with Graham Parkes

crux holds beta, very tiny holds, hard move, 6a
Sam1991 - 2nd β - 17/Apr/11 with Andy J and Mark

Have seconded before. More like E2 6a

bigdrew - 2nd β - 09/Oct/10 with Mark R

Route-finding tricky - and a bit eliminate - leading to much faffing at crux. Fine once I figured out the sequence and was happy with my gear.
PeteH - Lead O/S - 21/Sep/10 with Mike Grant

Chris Craggs - TR - 14/Mar/10

delicate and precarious moves.

Traversed off left. One to come back to in better weather and when I'm feeling braver.
Martin Haworth - Lead dnf - 02/Oct/09 with Tony

Martin couldn't manage the crux - not surprising really as it was drizzling and the rock was starting to get damp. Finished up the VS to the left.

Totally incorrect line shown in RF guide. Go either right or left of the centre of the scoop - E2 either way.
