Possibly second ascent? Had the intention of trying B4XS but that was bird-banned so got on this instead.

Charles - TR dnf - 04/Mar/07 with Tom Fox

It was like a who's-who of gritstone climbing at the crag that day: Bentley, Patterson, Foster, Grimer, Dunne, Honeyman. Finally had no excuses and had to lead the long-term project. One mat, and sacrificial belayer (Thanks John!). Bitterly cold.
