Lots of fun, really makes you think, a little dirty in the mid section, but just wiped the grime on my shorts and carried on. Fantastic route.

Looked clean from the bottom, but very mossy. The necessary footholds were clean though. We had perfect weather, but I could imagine this being quite difficult in any other condition.

Beginning the route was very straight forward. Main climb was covered in moss and damp. Not an easy shuffle up.
jennifers87 - Lead O/S - 12/Jul/13 with Marissa Earnshaw
Wet and slimy. Looked clean from the ground. Would be a lovely route in condition.
leeds_belle - 2nd O/S - 12/Jul/13 with Jen Shaftoe
Really good, though hard for the grade! Moss does not help!
tom bre - Lead O/S - 09/Jul/13 with Matthew Brereton
Backed off as it looked so repulsively green - Definitely not three stars, in the state it's in.

A bit green in places but doesn't affect the climbing much. A fantastic route - needs more traffic!

horrible! Mossy, damp, broken glass and even a sanitary pad! 3 stars my arse!

Foul climb. Moss jams. Tugged on a hex.

Needs a good clean, gave parts of it a brush on lead, but need to abseil for a major spring clean. Shame its so dirty as it would be so good, unfortunately at present it isn't getting the traffic it deserves to keep it clean.

Great climbing made all the more interesting by the huge amounts of moss.
jiles - Lead O/S - 15/Aug/10 with Alex Winter
Lovely day and only us on crag. The bottom half of the route had turned into a lovely mossy lawn, great for a picnic but not to climb. Needs more traffic. Kind of fun though.

very green, but good hex placements all the way, wouldn't trust cams in the moss! maybe 1* in its current condition but a few more ascents will remove the muck from it, as my previously white T-shirt shows

It could be named for me, but it was not a bugbear. I found dry moves, but needed to scrape away thick moss to place gear in the crack. Good route but needs more traffic.

Absolute quality and felt comfortable all the way up. Wouldn't like it to have been my first severe lead though - quite steep and slippery (due to moss/green slime) in middle section.

Was a bit green but still enjoyed the feel of teetering up it with potential to slip. Its well protected throughout so green doesn't matter much! Nice climb.
