Did exactly what Duncan did - got wrong handed at the crux, couldn't reverse, droppped off onto those two shite pegs, lowered down to the rest before finishing it off. Amazing big pitch, but so much manky gear.

Lead as one pitch. Lacked the gumption for the final pull and fell. Climbed from belay clean. Great route.
farmus21 - Lead dog - 01/Oct/14 with Sam Radcliffe
Climbed in a single pitch, then direct over the roof at the top

In a oner, fantastic route!!! First pitch was drippy, maybe E2 when dry? Second pitch one move wonder but so airy and nice..

Awesome lead in one big pitch. Foolishly got wrong-handed on the crux and couldnt reverse so tried to keep going up. fell off, lowered to where the belay would be if you split it and re-climbed the top pitch clean from there. That'll do.

Epic route. 2 pitches. Take 15 quick draws for doing in one. Went left past flake on crux overhang - felt like v hard 6a to me like this.
wolverine - Lead O/S - 26/May/12 with Matt Sparkes
Tough move to cross the final roof. Trick is to go right here, not left!
Mr Sparkle - 2nd dog - 26/May/12 with Mike Hayes
Top pitch is a bit of a let down. VS climbing to a 6alet move. First pitch is top draw.

Dave Turnbull, BMC - AltLd - 13/Jun/10 with Rich Mayfield
Awesome! Fixed gear is questionable in places but it's generally either backed up with natural gear or sufficiently plentiful as to not be a major worry. Move above final roof felt 6a to me going up just right of the pegs. Re previous comment it seems fairly contrived to insist the 'true' line is some eliminate direct up past the peg at that point particularly when you're then heading right to the tree anyhow. I'll take the guidebook description which says either way is just fine.
Justin T - Lead O/S - 09/Oct/09 with Cherry
Hidden - 2nd - 09/Oct/09
Don't understand comments re top pitch. There is a bent peg but it does not obscure any holds! The way to climb the crux takes a little working out but once wired its two quick 6Aish moves, certainly nothing harder. A very fine & memorable outing especially if you climb the overhanging & half-dead yew tree to top out!
DSM - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/09 with Andy Gittins
Seconded Steve on this in 06. bottom pitch is absolutely brilliant, second pitch used to have good moves but the peg over the roof has bent and is now covering the crucial handhold so its 6b. or potentially cop-out right. Also on pitch 1 there is a heavy reliance on fixed gear which is getting poor so could be quite bold quite soon.

Apparently a line just to the left of the pegs after moving round the roof on pitch 1 is a bit easier. Found the 6a 'crux' quite easy - wide bridging, finger lock and heave.
