tres crap finish - better in trainers
timmsy - AltLd - 08/Sep/14 with David_Gledson

Add two pitches of easy climbing to escape from the top and allow a couple of hours for the decent. The top of the third pitch requires the use of green holds (grass and heather) as it is so over-grown. Quite an adventure!
bsparky - AltLd O/S - 23/Aug/14 with Ralph Ranford

Some good bits but lots of vegetated bits that spoiled it really. Not an easy top out - added two pitches for safety. James enjoyed the ridge - our unofficial pitch 5.
Sue Underwood - AltLd O/S - 29/Jul/14 with James Gooding

Would be a great climb if there was an abseil point half way up pitch 3. It's dreadful from then on, heavily vegetated with a very awkward top-out and descent route. We added two long pitches to get to safe ground on top of the crag and walked off another way. Might have been quite a fun mountaineering finish if it was still light!
James_Kendal - AltLd O/S - 29/Jul/14 with Sue Underwood

choose alternate last pitch, maybe got lost as it felt a little more like vs but hs but was nice climbing nonetheless.
joe hallam - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/14 with chelsey robinson, matt dudman

I led p2&4. Hot sunny Bank Holiday - had the crag to ourselves. 2 teams arrived as we were finishing. Painful walk off in rock shoes! P4, Chose alternative finish - very good
Pete Nugent - AltLd O/S - 26/Aug/13 with Roger Wilkinson

Twenty years since I first did this route so had forgotten any detail. It is a really worthwhile mountaineering route (meaning there is some steep pasture on one pitch and the descent requires a bit of hillcraft) a bit along the lines of Gillercombe Buttress. The left-hand finish is equally as good as pitches 1 - 3 and recommended. Unfortunately pitch 1 has a crux way harder than anything else on the route - more like HS. DO TAKE YOUR APPROACH SHOES FOR THE DESCENT!

bobjohnston - Lead - 22/Aug/13

a nice route - enjoyed it all the way - even the bizarre topping out, when we had another 2 pitches to get to something safe to descend.
Little B - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/13 with Jane

Give your self enough time for the descent as it can take a fair while to get back off the top.

Great first three pitches. Protection bit sparse early on. Top pitch rubbish. Lead 1 and 3. Sadly lacking in bilberries.

All the Billberry's had gone! Paul led P1 and P4, Steve P2, me 3 and 5 (along the excellent spine).

led pitch 2 and ate 6kg bilberries on pitch 3
Shuttsie - AltLd - 31/Jul/11 with tony, Andrea Sales

Traverse across to right above overhang on pitch 2 looked quite bold for severe, but holds were good. Ate loads of juicy bilberries towards/ on top. Belayed the first part of the descent. OK thereafter.
johnjb - 2nd O/S - 08/Aug/10 with Ian Moore

3 good pitches and a bilberry finish.......

peas65 - Sep/07

Hidden - 2nd - 04/Feb/07

missed the supposed 'proper' descent route and carried on up to the top of the crag for another 4 pitches across a ridge, a worthwhile mistake because the listed descent looks terrible.
