rfdl100 - Lead O/S - 20/Jul/13 with Simon Waters

A bit of cheeky hidden jug funding makes this an absolute peach. A few nice jams and a plethora of gear, quality VS.
Pike - Lead O/S - 30/Jun/13 with Marc

James led after accidentally setting up the harder right route...
Alex Thompson - 2nd O/S - 08/Jun/13 with UKC James, Chris Tan

Hoyes - Lead O/S - 29/May/12 with Julian L

Good route. Plenty of gear.
markblair - Lead O/S - 26/May/12 with Alison Dixon

Found the middle section very awkward, mainly due to going blind and hence failing to use the large obvious foothold. Then got all worried and lowered off. On seconding it (having carefully noted the foothold) it was ok, but tough for the grade.
Julian Lane - Lead dnf - May/12 with Mynydd James

Bob Windsor - Lead - 01/Oct/11 with Rick Graham

john.gaffney - Lead O/S - 04/Jun/11 with Ed Arnett

Much better than it looks. Follows a wide crack that you soon discover cuts the buttress completely in two.

I think we did an amalgamation of 2 routes... Al did well going direct over the bulges, and I went too far left!
