Thom started the route and backed off the crux, I finished with a helping hand from a bolt on the adjacent route. Good stiff crux!

Hell of a nice little climb. Only top roped due to not being bothered to go back to the car to get my rack.

jamiev - TR O/S - 28/Apr/13

Top roped and false-led...learning to place gear for trad. Loads of protection, secure holds and a nice finish
Ben Taylor 1989 - TR O/S - 22/Apr/13 with Alex wright

False lead as a gear placement practice.

Nice to do a low grade limestone trad route that isn't polished to death. Shame about the name in the guide book hasn't made it on to here.
petellis - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/10 with Ally

Very nice. Went straight up to finish, not sure if that was correct. Felt more like HVS 4c/5a to me.

Surprisingly good route and hard for the grade (Probably HVS 4c+). Finishing up corner on right is the logical line. Much better than the photogenice Indian Summer to the left.
