Took Jenny up first pitch...scared to death and dragged me a couple of feet off a ledge !!!!
crabtreer - Lead O/S - 16/Sep/12 with Swampy

Second time I've done this - first bit is still very hard! Also finished it off properly at the top without abseiling down from the tree. The descent route is a bit hairy though in rock boots on wet grass ledges with large drops - wish I'd have taken my trainers up with me
Angie Jones - 2nd O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Badger

John lead first pitch and I lead the rest for my first lead climb

ran out second pitch all way to the large ledge, 50m, then abbed off tree into gully as party in front where taking an eternity on last pitch it had took them 2hrs to do the first chimney pitch, then they tied up a crazy dog at the bottom so we started on this wall, thanks
