Hard for VDiff
Ross.Cooper - Solo O/S - 26/Feb/12

Horrible climb; route-finding is difficult, the traverse round from the start to the flake is difficult to protect, there's not a great deal of gear, and it's not even that easy!
MatthewV - Lead O/S - 02/Oct/11 with Sally

p_won - Lead - Oct/11 with Matt Rowlands
