led line over on the R. side of face III quite interesting.
nickcanute - Lead - 19/Dec/10 with andy lewandowski (seriously! yes i know it was cold!)

Climbed two lines - one about 20ft right of the gully, which had several tricky steep sections but with mostly bomber turf; and one another 20-30ft right of that, which was easier. Not that much snow on the face, mostly well frozen turf.
PeteH - AltLd O/S - 06/Dec/10 with Nick

led a line about 20ft right of gully with some nice steep moves on good turf (about III/IV) and seconded Pete up another line about 30ft right again at III. on the left hand line some pillocks had scratched into the rock "S+D Nov 2010" Know who did this? i wonder if it is the "simon and dean" who have logged a photo of this route dated 29/11/10

Turf was quite unfrozen and unconsolidated. But enjoyable for my first mixed route!

Hidden - Solo O/S - 03/Feb/10

lots of snow, and wading through gorse... went out to the right due to chossyness and the attraction of nice looking snow...it wasnt in the end.
frecro - Lead O/S - 08/Jan/10 with Zoe Thornton

First known ski descent. Quite a lot of wind slab, quite a lot of rocks but great coming over the cornice onto that little face :)
adi bryant - 06/Jan/10

Climbed at 11pm in the dark, great fun and very exploratory as no clear line. Turf frozen solid. Harder than gully which was very tracked out.
Somerset swede basher - Lead O/S - 04/Jan/10 with Ben Ranson

Good nick! Never gets the sun, still frozen hard at midday. Decent gear too, unlike Mam tor...
Adam Long - 2nd - 21/Dec/09 with Ben Bransby

Done a couple of different lines.
