Beautiful sunny morning, but sun left crag as we got there. Rock very damp - Mod seemed very hard!
JohnHutch - 2nd - Jan/14 with Shane, Nik H

Fun solo with sack as part of a lovely sunny November afternoon wander into the hills. Not a place to be injured when alone, so wore a lid and was super-careful !

Done in rucksacks as a way to the top to head home. I've put it as Second although I actually soloed most of the route while Charley was setting up his very dodgy "ropeknot in a vague hole" belay!! Lovely little route with some interesting moves near the top and very suspect topout for inexperienced climbers.

Wet day. Greasy rock.
99bolivar - Lead O/S - 02/Nov/10 with Roy Swinden

Easy climb though a lot more interesting as a solo. Feels quite exposed especially in high winds.
Stuart Hurworth - Solo O/S - 07/Oct/10 with Tom Kimber

First half was very straight forward, with fun but easy exposure but the guidebook didn't say anything about the second half being a stream. There was running water down the rock, and lots of vegetation which made the solo a bit scary!
