Hidden - Lead - 16/Mar/14

Nightmare. Had to solo and recover a jammed cam and have beat up knuckles! No pro at all until you reach the crack to the left. Fun traverse.
Ben Taylor 1989 - Solo O/S - 22/May/13 with Alex wright

It is a solo throughout the traverse and the belay is in the next county.

Freezing couldn't feel my hands after the first 2 moves but a really fun traverse

Belay is miles a way, makes it impossible to communicate with 2nd

An enjoyable traverse but the finish was a bit green and as this was done in the height of summer I guess it diesn't get any better than that! Not much at the top to belay from either

C.J.Horsfield - 2nd - 2007 with tom boyle

Super route, tricky HS 4b, though it's unclear what level you're supposed to traverse at. I went at mid-height, with hands on the ramp line just above the big 'bucket' formations.
